Conservatorship and probate seem overwhelming? Help is available

Dealing with the demise of a spouse or another close family member is naturally difficult. Nevertheless, it cannot be avoided, and every Florida citizen will go through such a traumatic experience at some time. Unfortunately, the stress of dealing with the financial intricacies and matters such as conservatorship cannot be escaped. Matters to address include those related to assets, insurance, investments, and -- in many cases -- family members who are contentious.

How does divorce factor into the probate process?

Grey divorce, or dissolving a marriage after the age of 50, is becoming a common thing now in our country. It's a fact we've brought up before on our blog, as some of our more frequent readers already know. But it's also one we feel our readers should be aware of. That's because grey divorce can significantly complicate situations, especially when you consider its affect on a couple's estate.

The difference between guardians and guardians ad litem

Not everyone has the authority or capacity to represent his or her own interests in a legal proceeding. Florida family and probate courts sometimes appoint guardians ad litem to protect the interests of individuals, like minors or incapacitated parties, in these instances. To be clear, a person who is a guardian ad litem is not the same as a person known as a guardian, who makes decisions for others.
