Part II: planning for death of a spouse

Regular readers of our Brevard County legal blog know that we recently wrote about steps couples can take to protect themselves and their assets.

Part I: planning for death of a spouse

At the very top of lists of the most stressful life events is the death of a spouse.

Legal tools useful for protecting your college-bound child

We have a couple of fine institutions of higher learning here in Brevard County: Eastern Florida State College and Florida Institute of Technology.
