Real estate litigation: Disputes often arise during construction

Michigan residential building projects are typically a time full of excitement and anticipation. However, any number of things can go wrong, and homeowners are often disillusioned when building projects extend far beyond the expected occupancy dates. It is not uncommon for legal complications to arise, and in many cases, real estate litigation may be the only way to resolve such issues.

Couples need to share information about an estate plan

At the beginning of marriage, most couples do not want to think about the possibilities of anything other than continued wedded bliss. However, all couples must face the reality that the unexpected is possible. Part of this reality is to discuss and share feelings and facts about creating an estate plan. When it comes to estate planning, Michigan couples need to not only understand each other's wishes but also which steps to take together to ensure those wishes are fulfilled.

Reasons a Michigan family may pose a will challenge

Even when there is a legal will in place and a family member has taken adequate estate planning steps, the family left behind may not fully agree with that will or have specific reasons to dispute the estate plan. When a Michigan family believes there is reason to dispute the distribution of assets, that family may pursue a will challenge. While each family is unique, there are a few common reasons families may choose to contest a will, and a few specific areas of a will may be subject to a will challenge.

An effective estate plan is necessary if you are married or not

Creating an estate plan is not just for married couples who want to ensure their spouse and/or children are cared for after their passing. Single people of all ages also need to consider having a comprehensive estate plan in place and periodically updated. Michigan singles are as concerned with their assets as anyone else. They will also benefit by considering who may have decision making rights regarding health and finances in the event of incapacitation.
