What happens after a brain injury?

Brain injuries cause complex medical issues that can last a lifetime. Coping with these effects is often challenging, both for the person with the brain injury as well as his or her family. Knowing what to expect can help you and your loved ones plan for the future. The Brain Injury Association of America offers the following information. 

Reviewing how divorce affects estate plans

Among the several important events that occur in the lives of Ocean County residents, two likely stand out from the rest: marriage and death. As odd as it may sound, the two are often inextricably linked, as when one marries, they assume the responsibility of caring for their spouse, and when they die, they have the responsibility of having planned to ensure that the care of their spouse continues. Information shared by the American Psychological Association shows that nearly 90 percent of adults in Western cultures marry. At the same time, 40-50 percent of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. What impact would a divorce have if one has already stipulated in their estate planning documents that their ex-spouse should be listed amongst their beneficiaries?

Estate planning can be a hard thing for anyone to talk about but it can be an even more delicate topic in a blended family situation.
