When your parent or other loved one dies, you may be faced with the long process of settling their estate. This can involve selling assets to pay off debts and taking inventory of possessions. You'll need to involve the court, so you want to hire a probate attorney to guide you through the process. The laws for handling estates vary by state, so you'll want guidance from your attorney on how to proceed, but here is a general overview of what you can expect.
It can happen. One minute you're enjoying spending time in a new relationship, the next minute you wake up and find yourself wed to that person you just met a few weeks ago. If you have made an impulsive (and ill-advised) marriage decision, you may just assume that you can have the marriage annulled and be on your separate ways.
