Mediation may be an alternative to estate litigation for some

When it comes to a dispute regarding a loved one's estate plan, is estate litigation the inevitable result? Not necessarily. It is possible to address disputes regarding a loved one's estate plan through forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation. Mediation can be a way for families in California to put their differences aside and work together to come to a resolution that meets everyone's needs.

Divorce is a great time to revisit your will and estate plan

At the end of your marriage, one of the last things you likely want to think about is the potential for your death. However, it is extremely important to review your estate plan during any major life change. If you don't, you could end up leaving people on your will as beneficiaries when you no longer welcome them in your life.

What are some options regarding the family home and divorce?

Home is where the heart is, which is why it is often a major sticking point when it comes to property division in a divorce. Spouses in California may both want to keep the family home post-divorce, or perhaps neither wants it. What is important is that spouses understand all their legal options when it comes to dividing the marital home in a divorce, so they can make informed decisions that are in their best interests.

Divorce, whether amicable or not, is a reality for many

No couple saying their wedding vows anticipates that their marriage might not last. After all, they are pledging to stay together, "'til death do us part." However, the reality is that many couples in San Mateo will find that as the years go by, their relationship is no longer tenable, and they are best-off getting a divorce.
