When should an estate plan be updated?

Your estate plan ensures your heirs are well-protected after you're gone. It also helps deal with financial matters related to your estate, including the payment of debts and settling remaining taxes. While having an estate plan in place is of the utmost importance, you should also take the time to update your plan when necessary. In this case, Fidelity recommends the following advice so you can rest assured that your will and other documents sufficiently meet your needs. 

Creating an estate plan amidst a major crisis in life

There are many unexpected events which can upend one’s life. A divorce that someone never saw coming, a health crisis that could prove fatal and a motor vehicle collision that results in a permanent disability are just some of the crises that people have to work through. Unfortunately, for those who are involved in these crises, other important responsibilities such as estate planning matters may be pushed to the side—which can be a costly mistake.

Ohio’s Administrative License Suspension may sound unjust

It can seem somewhat extreme at first, but after a while, it might still sound extreme. If you’re stopped on suspicion of operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI), you’re expected to take a chemical test and if you’re found to be above the limit, your license is suspended immediately, on the spot. The punishment is carried out before any court or jury or attorney has a say.

What is a high-functioning alcoholic?

When thinking about alcoholism, most people imagine a person without a home, job, or family that has lost everything to his or her addiction. However, this is not true for the vast majority of alcoholics. A high-functioning alcoholic is a person who is able to keep life together for the most part while also abusing alcohol. It's crucial that you're able to recognize the signs of alcoholism so that you or your loved one can seek out assistance before devastating consequences occur.
