Hidden assets in divorce: Cryptocurrency posing a challenge

It's difficult to find cryptocurrency online. Divorcing Louisiana residents who are intent on hiding assets during their divorces may use this to their advantages. It's something the legal profession has been wrestling with for a while now. There are more divorce cases heading to court that involve these kinds of hidden assets, and statistics show that the majority of people who own these assets are men under the age of 30. That's also around the average ages of couples divorcing in the country.

5 estate planning components to consider

Creating your estate now helps you to feel more secure since you know that you've done what you can to help provide for your loved ones after you pass away. Many people don't take the time to create this plan because they think it is going to take too long or that it is pointless. No matter what your financial state is right now, an estate plan is important.

Elder abuse on the rise, but more seniors reporting incidents

When it comes to abuse of the elderly, seniors can be both on the receiving and giving ends of things. Some Louisiana seniors in care who struggle with dementia display outbursts of anger and can be guilty of physical abuse of other elders. Dementia can change once placid people into those with violent tempers.

Divorce in Louisiana: What happens if a spouse is hiding assets?

Divorce can be filled with all kinds of animosity and the last thing on many soon-to-be former spouses' minds is sharing. But with divorce in Louisiana, by law each spouse has to be transparent with the other when it comes to financial assets. That's not always the case, however, and some spouses resort to hiding what they have because they don't believe everything they have should be shared.

Estate planning: Keeping the family business afloat

Entrepreneurs are busy people and usually don't have the time to think about unforeseen events, especially their own deaths or retirements. However, if Louisiana business owners don't do some estate planning regarding how their businesses can outlive them or live without them at the helm, chances are they won't be able to survive for long. Planning for a transition in ownership is crucial if a business is to continue on for many years.

Special-needs trusts are important for the disabled

There are many things you may wish to do for your loved one with a disability, but one of the best things you can achieve is opening a special-needs trust. There are various types, like first- and third-party trusts, community trusts and others, but the outcome is the same: They protect your loved one's best interests.
