Digital assets count in Delaware estate planning

With modern technology comes a new class of assets, known as digital assets. They include online properties like a person's Facebook page, an online file storage account, a blog, email accounts and other social media profiles. Unless a person includes these digital assets in a will and gives the beneficiaries access to logins and passwords, the contents of those sites that may include year's worth of photographs, video, audio and written works could be deleted upon the account holder's death.

Grandparents who are retiring early may see unintended effects

Delaware residents may be interested in a study that looks at one phenomenon leading many to retire earlier than planned. This early retirement may be having unintended consequences, however. The Pew Research Center study revealed some surprising statistics about the number of women who are working after they become grandparents. According to the researchers, women who are age 58 to 61 are nearly 30 percent less likely to be working when they have grandchildren than when they don't. Those grandparents who are aged 51 to 54 are 21 percent less likely to be working than their grandchild-less counterparts.

How should incorrect zoning be addressed?

A Delaware land owner could face the need for assistance with zoning issues for various reasons, especially if there is a realization that the existing zoning is inconsistent with an intended use of a property. Such an issue might arise because of a change in business models. There might be a conflict because of a decision to house certain types of animals on a residential property. A business owner might seek permission to operate from a home in a residential neighborhood. There are several approaches to handling these zoning issues.
