Estrangement, family drama and inheritance

Sometimes, estate planning issues can be particularly emotional, and people may struggle to figure out which decision is best. This can be especially true for people who are experiencing problems with some of their family members, such as parents who have an estranged child that they have not spoken to in many years. If you are trying to work through these problems yourself, it is vital to take a careful look at the ins and outs of your family circumstances and decide which options are best, especially when it comes to inheritance.

Objecting a will in Minnesota and penalty clause for contest

When a person drafts a will in Minnesota, he or she does so with the hope that survivors will carry out his or her final wishes in accordance with the document. Unfortunately, there are times when another individual forces a testator to alter the will against his or her wishes, or when another individual takes it upon him or herself to make alterations to suit his or her own selfish needs. When this happens, a beneficiary of the document is at liberty to contest the will.

Should I have a health care directive?

If you end up in the hospital with a medical condition that makes it impossible for you to communicate your wishes, what would happen? According to the Minnesota Department of Health, doctors will usually consult with your loved ones as to what to do regarding your situation. Your loved ones may or may not follow your wishes. To prevent something from happening that you do not want, your best option is to create a health care directive.

Using market analysis to strengthen your business

The excitement of starting your own business is fueling your desire to continue working hard and moving your company towards success. You are facing new decisions every day and are recognizing that sometimes, the risk is worth the reward. At Dunlap & Seeger, A Professional Association, we have helped many business owners in Minnesota to secure their intellectual assets with reliable legal counseling. 

Yes, you can rebuild credit quickly after a bankruptcy

Establishing yourself as credit-worthy is a process that can take many years or even decades for those with a rocky start. Unfortunately, it can take as few as three or four months to utterly destroy your credit rating. A few missed payments, combined with penalty fees and higher interest rates, can leave you in a serious financial predicament. Add in a creditor lawsuit, and your credit won't get you far.Thankfully, federal bankruptcy protections can allow people who build up too much debt to unburden themselves and hit the financial reset button. Far too many people dismiss the potential benefits of bankruptcy because they believe myths about the process. Most people can keep their home and will have the opportunity to rebuild their credit again.
