Michigan families need estate plan for digital assets

Estate plans essentially outline the fate of one's personal belongings and other assets, such as bank accounts and investments. As technology continues to grow by leaps and bounds, it is becoming more important to think outside of the box when it comes to estate planning. Simply put, it is about much more than who gets the fine china and the house. An estate plan for Michigan residents may now need to include digital assets.

Michigan city considers crime-free leases

When you read a lease agreement in one Michigan city, you might be surprised at some point in the future what can get you immediately evicted. An ordinance has been proposed that would include a crime-free clause in a lease agreement. While the new ordinance hasn't passed yet and is simply under discussion, in the near future, it could put some families immediately on the street if someone in the home commits a crime.

In Michigan, an estate plan can be about more than family

Traditionally, estate planning has been the process of handing down belongings and other assets from one generation to the next. The process of creating an estate plan is highly personal. That is reflected in some recent changes to the process in general, such as for those who do not have children or who are seeking a more creative approach. Michigan residents and others around the country are taking a different approach as family dynamics continue to evolve.
