What factors determine how much you owe in support?

If your divorce settlement is going to involve paying spousal and/or child support to your soon-to-be ex, it's generally best when the two of you can reach an agreement on the amount, with the help of your attorneys. Sometimes, however, couples can't agree on a fair amount of support and have to ask a judge to settle the matter.

Important steps when developing your estate plan

Wealth management professionals advise their high-net worth (HNW) clients to take some important steps when developing their estate plans to help ensure a seamless transition of their wealth to their heirs and beneficiaries. However, these steps are wise for just about anyone, even if your estate isn't in the millions of dollars.

Dealing with sibling rivalries when creating your estate plan

When you're developing your estate plan, it's important to acknowledge challenging family dynamics that might cause conflicts after you're gone. Many people don't like to admit to their estate planning attorney -- or to themselves -- that their children don't get along or that their blended family isn't exactly The Brady Bunch. However, attorneys have heard it all. By knowing what your concerns are, they can help you develop a plan that will minimize conflict.

What is fraudulent misrepresentation?

When two or more parties enter into a contract, they stipulate that they're in agreement on the terms of the contract. If a party knowingly makes false statements, it may be possible to hold them liable. These "statements" don't necessarily have to be in writing. In fact, remaining silent about something could also be considered making a false statement. To rise to the level of fraudulent misrepresentation, however, the false statement must have a material effect on the agreement the parties have entered into.
