Adoptions

December 12, 2017

Adopting a child can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. However for first time adoptive parents, the adoption process can seem overwhelmingly complicated, time consuming, and frustrating-especially if you are eager to get started.

Adoption at the end of the 1990s is very different from what it was even 10 years ago. Prospective adoptive families can feel vulnerable as they attempt to learn as much as possible in the shortest period of time to become informed consumers of adoption services.

The first step is to read and to educate yourself about adoption in general, the types of children available to adopt, and the various avenues to adoption.

Wills, Trusts & Estates

What is a Will?

Wills have been with us since the first days of recorded history. Archaeologists have found hieroglyphics in Egyptian tombs leaving property to others. The Bible told of the story that Jacob left Joseph a larger inheritance than his brothers received, and of the trouble that ensued as a result.
