When Should A Person Make Out A Will And/Or Have Estate Planning?
We Have Four Children And I Feel Like We Have Already Waited Too Long, But We Don'T Have Many Assets And At This Point It Might Just Be A Waste Of Money That We Could Use On Other Things. At What Point Does It Become Absolutely Necessary To Have A Plan? We Live In Nevada. Thank You!
There are many reasons you would want to visit a lawyer to talk about an estate plan and/or a will in Nevada. Many of the reasons people choose to create an estate plan are not financially motivated at all. In fact, most parents choose to create a will or trust because they want to put certain protections in place for their children. Consider these reasons other families with children have found estate planning important:
A Will Can Designate a Guardian: Most parents are very concerned about naming a guardian for their kids in case they are no longer around to take care of them. In a will you are able to name a guardian who would be given the right to raise your children. They guardian would be given legal power to do everything you would as their parent. If there was no guardian named if you were to pass away when your children were still young they court would have to name a guardian. This court process can be hard on families as they can many times turn into a family feud over the children.
Power of Attorney for Health Care: Having a Power of Attorney for Health Care in Nevada will allow you to designate your wishes for end of life care. When this document is drafted properly it can save your family a significant amount of pain and heart ache. It can be as specific as you desire. For example, you can save your family from the terrible decision or having to “pull the plug” in the case that it may be an option.
Power of Attorney for Finances: When you have a Power of Attorney for Finances you are giving someone you trust the ability to manage your finances in case you are not able to do so yourself. Having this document can be a huge benefit to your family. This document comes in handy when your spouse or someone close to you needs access to your checking account to pay your mortgage or utility bills. Without a Power of Attorney for Finances a court would have to get involved and it could significantly impact your families well being.
Estate Planning Can Be All About Family: Even if you are young and healthy all of these documents can be priceless in the event they are needed. Yes, it does cost some money to have the above documents drafted properly by a Nevada estate planning attorney, but you can’t put a price on the security they bring if you were to ever need them. Most people wait to put these documents into place until it is too late or they wait until they see someone close to them go through the pain associated with not having these documents.
Family can be a much greater motivation than money alone. Yes, there are many financial motivations to having an estate plan but with four children you may be more interested in making sure they are taken care of both financially and emotionally. A properly drafted estate plan can provide a significant amount of peace of mind.
Legal Service Dog Question?
I Am Aware That You Can Claim Your Service Dog On Your Taxes However I Am On Ssi And Ssdi And Only Make 647 Per Month So I Do Not File Taxes According To The Irs. However I Been Told Because Amber Is My Dependent I Should Be Able To Get Help With Food For Her Because Of My Income Level And Because She Is A Need To Help Me Live Independently. How Do I Get This Help. I Do Collect Food Stamps From What I Understand Because She Is A Dependent I Would Get A Small Amount Of Cash Assistance From Arizona Department Economic Security But They Say No Is This True? Because Us Department Of Justice And Ada Says I Am Suppose To Get Help Due To My Income But From Whom?
The ADA does not guarantee you help for anything, just an equal opportunity to access goods and services, the same as any non-disabled person. The ADA requires businesses and states to present their goods and services in a manner which gives you equal access. This usually means removing architectural barriers so that you can actually enter the building where the goods and services are located. Where service dogs are concerned, it means allowing a qualified person with a disability to enter a place accompanied by their trained service dog even when pets are not generally permitted. That's it. That's all the ADA has to do with service animals.
You can't claim a dog, even a service dog, as a dependent. The tax deduction is for unreimbursed medical expenses, not dependents. Under the law, service animals are considered durable medical equipment or property. There is no federal program for funding her food or veterinary costs.
SOME, but not all, states have programs which give people with disabilities partnered with service dogs trained by a recognized program a small stipend to defray some of the costs of maintaining a service dog.
Your Center for Independent Living may be able to help you find out if such exists in your state. Otherwise, I suggest you contact your state representative and ask them whether your state has such a program. They aren't likely to know the answer, but they are very likely to know where to direct your question. Having them inquire on your behalf will mean you get a speedier response than if you tried to follow the trail of red-tape yourself to find the government official who actually knows.

Take the Law School Admissions Test, or LSAT. The LSAT is given four times per year at hundreds of locations across North America. The test is divided into five 35-minute sessions, with each designed to test your aptitude for practicing law. The LSAT exam is used as a benchmark by law schools that are members of the LSAC, by most law schools in Canada and by a number of law schools that have not yet been approved by the ABA. Find out when and where the test will be given by following the LSAT link in the Resources section.
Apply to law school. Be prepared to apply to several schools before you are accepted to one. The legal profession is always in demand, and class sizes are limited. Make sure the school you ultimately select is accredited by the American Bar Association. More information about accredited schools can be found on the ABA website, which is listed in the Resources section.
Complete law school. After selecting a school, you will need to complete 3 years of study. At the end of this period, you will have a law degree. In most cases, you still cannot work as an attorney at this stage, but you can gain experience by working as a paralegal in a criminal lawyer's office while you wait to take the bar exam.
Pass the state bar exam. Each state has its own exam. You will need to pass this exam in the state(s) where you intend to practice law. The bar exam is often described as being the hardest test you will ever take, and many people have to take the exam several times before they receive a passing grade. After passing this exam, you will receive a license to practice law, and can begin to practice criminal law in that state.

What Are A Father'S Legal Rights?
My Girlfriend And I Are Having Issues, And We Have A Six Month Old Son Together. She Claims That She Is Not Happy In The Town That We Live In And Is Threatening To Take My Son And Move Back To Our Hometown Without Me If I Don'T Go With Her. What Are My Legal Rights As Far As My Son. We Live In Georgia. We Are Not Married, But He Does Have My Name, And I Did Sign The Legitimacy Papers When He Was Born. I Can'T Just Quit My Job, And I Am Pretty Confused As To What I Can Or Can'T Do About Her Running Off With My Son.
Technically, you have no legal rights. You aren't married which means that she assumed 100% physical and legal custody.
If you want rights, seek the assistance of a family law attorney and file for joint custody and joint legal custody. It will give you some say in what happens with your son. However, if you aren't granted joint custody or sole custody, there is nothing you can do. She can take him. Get to an attorney now so you can get a visitation order, child support order and custody order. The sooner you do this, she may be barred from moving while the proceedings are on-going. SEE AN ATTORNEY!
**CAVEAT** I have 1-2 users that intentionally troll my answers to do nothing but automatically rate my answers with a thumbs down regardless of how accurate my answer is. My answer is NOT LEGAL advice and contains information easily found through Internet research. The unauthorized practice of law is defined as giving legal advice and/or representation TO CLIENTS. My answer in no way forms a client relationship. I am not an attorney.
