Preparing children for an upcoming divorce

Any couple going through a breakup has to deal with telling others about the split and processing this news with the people in their lives. For married couples with children, the most important audience for this news is the shared children from the marriage.

Avoid multitasking while driving to lower the risk of accidents

As a Du Bois area motorist, you are probably aware that a leading cause of motor vehicle collisions is distractions. You may even be guilty of driving while distracted. Driving with just one hand on the wheel, looking at the GPS or reaching for a phone may seem harmless, but these types of activities often lead to catastrophic injuries and death. 

How do I know if my spouse is hiding assets?

When it comes to divorce in the DuBois area, what you do not know can hurt you. You might become so consumed with your emotions that you fail to take actions to protect yourself during the separation process. Your soon-to-be ex-spouse may be relying on you not paying attention so he or she can transfer and hide assets. You may think you know all there is to know about your partner’s financial accounts and assets. However, when divorce comes into the picture, some individuals become greedy and dishonest and resort to extraordinary measures to cheat their partners. 

How to stay safe on the interstate

Many people in Clearfield, Elk and Jefferson counties believe driving on the interstate is easier than the roads, but there are individuals who believe otherwise. Regardless of which side of the fence you are on, there is no disputing the fact that car accidents happen on the interstate every day. Many accident victims are not fortunate enough to drive away with little to no damage to their vehicles. Some accident victims sustain severe injuries, while others die. 

Executor’s responsibilities for communicating with beneficiaries

If anyone ever asks you to be the executor of his or her estate in the DuBois area, it helps if you have a good understanding of the responsibilities that come with the position. It may seem like an honor to be an estate executor of a loved one’s estate. But if you are not good with managing your time, responsibilities, finances and other important responsibilities in your life, then you may want to opt out.
