No one likes to talk about life after death. No doubt, it is depressing to think of eventual demise. However, if you have children, a pet, or property, preparing a Will should be on your priority “to-do” list.

Upon your passing, a Will serves many purposes. It can name a guardian and alternate custodian to watch over your children. If you own a pet, do you know who will take care of your pet when you pass? Naming a custodian for your pet is also something you can (and should) name in your Will. You can even set aside funds to help your custodian care for your pet upon your demise. Do you own a home or a bank account or treasured personal property? You can certainly list these items in your Will and declare the person who you wish to receive your assets. It is so important to name an executor for your estate who has the responsibility to manage your estate upon your demise.

Perhaps most importantly, preparing a Will may give you the gift of reassurance that your wishes will be carried out upon your demise and you can finally check it off your “to-do” list. Contact an attorney with Iandoli & Edens, LLC. They are experienced in Wills and estate cases and can prepare a Will quickly and in accordance with your wishes.

It seems like every time you read a newspaper or Google the news you hear more horrific stories about domestic violence. It can be something like the Ray Rice scandal, caught on video tape and rocking the NFL, or people you’ve never heard of in an article about murder/suicide of a couple.
So is domestic violence on the rise, or is it just more out in the open? Janay Rice allegedly claims that God made Ray do it to bring national attention to the problem of Domestic Violence. Whatever you believe, it is more out in the open today than ever before. Even as little as ten years ago there was an aura of shame felt by victims of Domestic Violence.

Today, Domestic Violence is one of the most complicated proceedings in Family Court. Unlike the Rice’s situation, Domestic Violence is rarely caught on video. Most often it is only the couple (and unfortunately sometimes the children) who witness the incident. In those cases the Judge must decide on the testimony of the two involved in the act, and their credibility. Testifying in open Court about such a private and emotional episode (whether true or not) can be extremely difficult for the litigants. Sometimes the accuser is so nervous or intimidated he or she makes a very poor witness. At times the accused is frantically trying to prove his or her innocence, and does not make a good impression to the Court.
