Protecting your kids

Create Your Quarantine Routine

What do you think of when you hear the word “routine?” Does it make you think of monotony and boredom? Or does it make you feel serene, calm, and have peace of mind?

Up until a few weeks ago, every day was the same. Wake up, go to school/work, eat, school/work, come home, dinner, bed. That’s all changed and routines have flown out the window!

Just think about how powerful you could be if you tweaked your routine to allow more time for you to build your legacy in the world.

How to travel internationally with your kids by yourself … 

What happens if you want to take a parent-child vacation without the other parent. You know, just a girls’ (or boys’) getaway weekend to the Caribbean? You and your child are so excited about the sun, sand, beaches, and dolphin excursions. You’re all packed and ready to go. Your partner drops you off at the airport, kisses you and your child goodbye, wishes you a “bon voyage,” and drives away.

Khloe Kardashian tells Kim which sister she wants as potential legal guardian for True

Did you know that Khloe Kardashian named a legal guardian for her daughter True before True was even born? Khloe said that she had observed Kim’s parenting style, and she thought that Kim and Khloe had more similar parenting styles than Khloe and Kourtney did. During the post-episode interview, Kourtney said that Khloe would be changing her guardian nomination back to Kourtney in the future.

Khloe did the right thing when choosing a guardian. She forgot about family ties. She forgot about making people happy. Khloe focused on what is essential – keeping her daughter safe. She focused on having her daughter raised in a loving household. Moreover, she focused on a person who has a similar parenting style

Are half-siblings considered full-siblings if there is no will?

Does a half-blood sister inherit the same as a whole-blood sister? Let’s start with the idea that relatives of the Half-Blood inherit the same as they would if they were relatives of the whole blood. Is Harry Potter coming to mind when you think of “relatives of the half-blood?” Thanks to J.K. Rowling, the concept of the “half-blood” now has a colloquial meaning as well as a legal meaning, although there is much less suspense or cliff-hanging-ness about the legal concept of half-bloods as compared to the magical concept of a half-blood. (And usually less discrimination as well. Usually.)

Who Should You Pick to be Your Kids’ Legal Guardians if You Die?

Have you ever thought about what happens to your kids if you die? No one wants to think about their own mortality, but until we develop a true singularity, then we all must confront and deal with our own death and what happens to our kids after we’re gone. Pricenomics analyzed data from an application based will generator Tomorrow.me to see who testators are choosing to fulfill this extremely important role in their estate plan.

5 Secrets about Living Trusts Your Kids Don’t Want You to Know

A living trust is a legal way of holding, managing, and distributing property. That’s a lot of fancy legal jargon for saying it’s a way of owning things. You can hold anything in a trust – bank account, your house, your car, your coin collection. The list is endless. The cool thing about a trust is that you can then decide how to give away everything that you own. Maybe that doesn’t sound so cool, but it’s a pretty neat trick, and it makes life much more comfortable for your loved ones after you die.

Bringing Fairness to those with Special Needs

On December 13, 2017, President Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act. It already passed in the House and the Senate. This law wants to expand medical research, invest in mental health resources, and combat prescription and opioid drug addiction problems.

The 21st Century Cures Act also contains the Special Needs Trust Fairness Act. This Act makes a simple change to current federal laws. A person with special needs can now create their special needs trusts.
