Protect Your Inheritance If Your Heirs Get Divorced!

Social Security and Other Same-Sex Spousal Rights

The landmark decision of the United States Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges, legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the country, raises issues that should be discussed with a good marriage and estate planning lawyer in Georgia. Due to same sex couples' prior inability to marry legally under the laws of their State, many same sex couples now planning to marry are typically older than the average newlywed couple.

Magic Words to Avoid the Double Whammy in Probate

If you co-own your home, it is vitally important to know exactly HOW that ownership is held. Why? Most people think that if they own property together and one of them dies, the deceased person's ownership interest automatically goes to the survivor. Sadly, it's not that simple. In order for title to pass automatically to the survivor, the ownership must be held as Joint Tenants with Rights of Survivorship (JTWROS). Those are your magic words. 

When Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer: Georgia Estate Planning Lawyer Style

The novelty Christmas song, " Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer," was written by Randy Brooks and originally recorded by the husband-and-wife duo of Elmo and Patsy in 1979. According to the song, the family matriarch gets intoxicated from imbibing too much eggnog. Then, having forgotten to take her medication and ignoring warnings from her family, staggers outside into a snowstorm. On her way, she is trampled by Santa Claus and his reindeer. At the next day's Christmas gathering: "all the family's dressed in black" while the widower acts as if nothing's happened, drinks beer, watches football and plays "cards with cousin Mel."The song ends as a cautionary tale that Santa, "a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves," is unfit to carry a driver's license, and that the listener should beware. In short, Santa is a menace to society.
