Publisher's estate plan shows how trusts can have stipulations


Pennsylvanians who are taking the necessary steps for comprehensive estate planning will have their own goals in mind when they do so. Situations vary and knowing how best to formulate the document is essential. This is true whether there are significant assets, a business, young children who must be cared for, loved ones who have special needs, and even pets who are of concern to the person creating the plan. Wills, trusts and other documents can be used to achieve the desired ends. Even those who have nothing in common with a famous person can use that person's strategies as a guideline to create their own plan and what is possible.

What must I do to make the Chapter 13 plan work?


When Pennsylvanians are struggling financially and decide that they would like to file for bankruptcy, the chapter under which they file will hinge on their individual circumstances. To keep your home or keep your motor vehicle it is wise to think about a Chapter 13 repayment plan. Since Chapter 13 is considered a "wage earner's" plan, those who file for Chapter 13 will usually have income and the ability to make payments. It is essential to understand exactly what must be done to succeed with the plan.

Four injured in a car accident as pickup crashes into restaurant


When drivers in Pittsburgh and throughout Pennsylvania are on the road, it will be in the back of their minds that there is a chance there will be a car accident. These crashes can happen at any time and in unusual circumstances. One circumstance in which people are not expecting to be involved in a car accident is when they are in a restaurant. Unfortunately, there are times when an accident finds them and the vehicle crashes into a building. Those who have been injured in a car accident in this type of situation have the same right to seek compensation in a legal filing as anyone else.

Recklessness and distracted driving common for teens


Any driver in Pennsylvania can pose a risk to others on the road, but there is a general perception that teens who have just gotten their license are particularly dangerous. Statistics back this up. There are numerous factors that make teens more susceptible to being in a crash. A lack of experience in knowing how to handle various situations is a natural part of that. People who have been in a car accident should know that it is possible that a teen was involved. This can be an important part of a legal filing to be compensated.

Is filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 possible a second time?


Pennsylvanians who are experiencing financial trouble and use bankruptcy to get back on stronger ground might run into trouble again. This does not imply that they have done something wrong or they are irresponsible. Myriad issues can arise leading to people having financial struggles and needing to consider filing for one form of bankruptcy or another to discharge debt. Just as in the initial case, job loss, medical costs and other factors can come up. A question that people will often have is whether they can file for bankruptcy a second time and when. Knowing the details of how this can be done is essential to a successful filing to again move forward free of debt.
