First Steps of Probate

The first item to be addressed after the death of a loved one is often the funeral or memorial service. This is something that is generally handled by the next of kin. Receipts for expenses should be kept as they can be paid out of the decedent's estate. The funeral director is usually the party that will supply the death certificates. Make sure you get several certificates from the funeral director as they will be needed as the probate process goes forward. After, or perhaps simultaneously with the funeral planning, you will want to locate the decedent's will if there is one.

Revocation of Consent in Adoptions

One of the ways an adoption can proceed is if the natural parent(s) consent to the adoption. There are several timing rules that must be adhered to. First, the consent cannot be signed by a natural mother within 72 hours, or three days, after the birth of a child. A consent can be signed by a natural father at any time after he has been notified the child is expected to be born or has been born. Executed consents become irrevocable after 30 days. They can be revoked on the basis of fraud or duress only within 60 days.

Summer Planning for Divorced Parents

With the end of school just two months away, it is important to start planning summer for your children. The absence of school means young children will need to be cared for in some way and teens will be arranging summer jobs. . In today's modern society we keep our children very busy and if you live here in Bucks and Montgomery PA there are many activities and camps. Your children may require the additional care of a babysitter or rides to get them to and from different places. I know there is a lot to think about.
