Estate planning for those who remarry

When Delaware residents find another chance at love, ensuring that their affairs are in order before the nuptials might not be the first -- or even the last -- thing on their minds. However, any estate planning that was done prior to the marriage needs to be updated to make sure that their ability to provide for family members continues. For those who did not have an estate plan at all, this is a good time to create one.

Do not wait to get estate planning done

After a Delaware resident's health begins to fail is not the time to think about wills, powers of attorneys and trusts. Estate planning decisions should be made as far in advance of health problems as possible. Otherwise, there is a danger that any of the decisions made could be out of convenience rather than careful thought and consideration to how those decisions will affect the life of the individual and surviving family members.

Estate planning issues for business owners

Delaware residents who own businesses often go through great pains to make them a success. Failing to account for what will happen after death could undermine their hard work and potentially mean the end of the business. Every business owner should account for the estate planning issues that accompany such ownership.

Why You May Want To Avoid Probate And How To Do It

Individuals who take the time to establish an estate plan often have numerous objectives and goals in mind. For many people, avoiding probate is among these goals. Probate is a notoriously complex and time- consuming process that can tie up related assets and property for months or, in some cases, even years. Additionally assets that pass through probate also become part of a public legal record and can therefore be accessed and viewed by anyone.
