Estate Planning for Newlyweds

The excitement of the wedding and the honeymoon have settled, and now it’s time to start building your life with your new spouse. It’s highly unlikely you want to think about the unglamorous things that come along with marriage, including estate planning, but it’s essential.

It’s important as a newly married couple to begin laying the groundwork for your estate plans, even if it’s not something that you really want to be doing.

Without proper estate planning, newly married couples aren’t protecting themselves or each other, and it’s a key practicality that must be dealt with in a timely way.

The following are some of the most important aspects of estate planning that should be done when you get married.

Create a Will

When you’re newly married, particularly as a young couple, you might feel like you don’t need a will because you have very few assets to cover. This is a mistake, and it’s important that when you get married, regardless of your bank account or assets, that you visit a qualified estate lawyer to create a will.

Even possessions that don’t necessarily seem like assets need to be included in a will, to make sure that your spouse gets things you want them to have in the event of your death. If you already have a will and you’ve just been married, it’s important to update it as well.

Review Your Insurance

Life insurance is a must-have for married couples, and it’s something you should certainly consider, particularly if one spouse is more dependent on the other financially.

When you’re thinking about life insurance and reviewing your insurance policies, it can also be a good time to do a general overview of your other policies and make sure you have all the necessary protection, including plans for those new wedding rings.

Talk To Your Employer

If you have insurance or retirement accounts through your employer, after you get married you should pay your company’s HR department a visit. You will need to add your spouse as your designated beneficiary to any applicable policies including life insurance that’s offered through work, as well as your retirement account.

Often, if this isn’t taken care of and a spouse unexpectedly passes away, they may either not have a beneficiary which means the retirement account could have to go through probate or their parents may still be named as their beneficiary.

Power Of Attorney

Again, discussing issues such as wills and power of attorney may not be how you ideally envisioned your marriage beginning, but doing so early on can give you peace of mind and a sense of security.

When you’re working on estate planning with your new spouse, don’t leave out things like powers of attorney. You want your spouse to be able to make medical, legal and financial decisions for you if you’re incapacitated or an accident occurs.

In addition, in the event both spouses are injured, for example in an automobile accident where they’re traveling together, it’s also a good idea to include an alternate decision maker.

The above aren’t necessarily every component of estate planning you need to manage after your wedding, but they are some of the most important ones. Working with a lawyer who specializes in estate planning will help you navigate the process and make the right decisions for you and your new spouse.

Personal Injuries in Winter

Winter is the time of year when we need to be very careful while spending our time outdoors. So many accidents can happen to us at virtually any place that it would be difficult for me to describe all of them in this post.

Since winter is coming soon and maybe even started in many parts of the world, I am going to concentrate on avoiding personal injuries in winter. If an accident already happened to you and you feel that you are not the one to blame, because you were very careful yourself, you might be interested in hiring a injury lawyer. With all the rain, snow, and ice in winter, it is very easy to injure yourself, even if you are very careful. The owners of shops and stores should put some extra effort to ensure that you are safe outside and inside of their premises. After all, it is their responsibility to make that happen.

While walking outdoors, you will see many places where you can easily hurt yourself. Have you ever seen slippery floors outside of a local supermarket? I think that there are more dangers awaiting us outside than we think. Another problem for pedestrians are sidewalks. If you walk a lot, then you have probably witnessed the bad condition of sidewalks in your neighborhood. The truth is that the roads are a lot more taken care of than sidewalks are, mainly because so many people use cars nowadays.

Before you attempt to accuse somebody for all those bad things that have happened to you make sure that you at least have somebody qualified by your side. You definitely don’t want to go for it alone as doing so can easily result in many unforeseen consequences. It is always best to hire lawyers who are willing to walk that extra mile for you and who simply care about you.

Crime Defence

Without any doubt, being accused of a crime can be one of the most upsetting event in a person’s life. If you have ever experienced anything like this you probably know exactly how it feels like and you wouldn’t want to go through it again. It probably was a rather unpleasant experience for you unless you have a professional and experienced lawyer by your side who knew what he was doing and who was genuinely interested in helping you.

Being arrested can be also very upsetting and traumatising for those close to you. One thing they should know about is that something such as criminal defence is worth learning about. Probably the most important tip is that you should never attempt to experience being arrested alone. It is always a good idea to have somebody experienced by your side, somebody who is qualified to help you to ease the pain resulting from being arrested. This might be exactly what you need when spending your time in a police station. It is always good to know that you never have to be there alone and that you have somebody to aid you in whatever it is that you need help with.

For a qualified and professional lawyer no offence is too great or too difficult to handle. Even if you have been accused of something that at first might seem impossible to defend I would like you to know that things might look a lot brighter once somebody qualified takes care of the matters for you. After all, nobody expects you to go through the whole process alone. Hiring a professional lawyer for the job is a lot better choice than not doing anything about it. If you don’t do anything about it, the lawyer assigned to your case randomly might not have you best interest in mind and he might not be willing to do his best to defend you in court.

Understand Your Bail Bond Terms

No one wants to wake up and find themselves in jail, but unfortunately thousands of people end up doing just that throughout the year in the United States. It’s only natural to want to get out of jail as soon as possible. This is usually accomplished by paying something called a bond. In exchange for being set free, you give the court a certain sum of money that you don’t get back until you appear in court. This gives the court assurance that you will return for your court date and it gives you the freedom to stay out of jail during legal proceedings.

Unfortunately bail bonds can become increasingly steep depending on the crime. If you’re being accused of something very serious, it’s likely that your bail bond is going to be so high that you can’t pay for it out of your standard savings. That’s where Pennsylvania bail bonds come into play.

Contact a bail bondsman

If you plan to appear for your court date, you might want to consider contacting a bail bondsman. This person or agency will pay your bail so that you can be released from jail. They will expect to receive a certain percentage of payment for their good deed and you will immediately be released from jail. If you’re facing legal proceedings in the future that might result in your imprisonment, make sure you contact your bail bondsman right away so that they can have you released from jail as soon as possible.

Keep your promises

You have two promises to keep if you hire a bail bondsman. First of all, you need to appear in court, ensuring that the bondsman gets their money back and you go through your legal proceedings without complications. Secondly, you need to make sure that you pay the fee the bail bondsman told you about before you signed on the dotted line. If you keep these two promises, it should be smooth sailing for you during your legal proceedings. Many times people do not keep their end of the bargain. Don’t be one of these people. Bail bondsman help to release people from jail who might be innocent. Make sure that they can continue their services by paying your debt to them and appearing for your court date. If you do these things, it’s a great system.
