When a loved one passes away, administrative tasks such as settling their affairs and filing for probate are often the last things on our mind. However, being prepared and understanding the steps you may have to take as a loved one’s executor can ensure their wishes are honored when the time comes.
It’s important to understand how the probate process is handled where you reside. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, for example, it is recommended that an estate’s executor file for probate within 30 days of the decedent’s death if there are assets passing through probate. We break down what you need to know before the probate process begins and how long it typically takes in our new blog post: https://mylegalcasecoach.com/when-does-probate-process-start

As a parent, it’s important to offer correction to your child when they behave in disrespectful, dangerous, or otherwise undesirable ways. But it is just as important to celebrate your child for behaving well.
By “catching” your child in the act of being good, you offer positive reinforcement for desired behaviors. Whether it’s picking up their toys, sharing with a friend or sibling, or displaying empathy, rewarding your child with praise strengthens the parent-child relationship and encourages your child to continue fostering desired behaviors. This kind of positive reinforcement is especially important for children of divorce, who may be more sensitive to conflict or feeling misunderstood by their parents.

When it’s clear that your aging parent can no longer perform the daily tasks they once could, they may require a guardian and conservator to manage their assets and financials and make decisions on their behalf. In these situations, a legal guardianship and conservatorship arrangement may be necessary.
In our latest blog, we explore what’s involved in establishing legal guardianship and conservatorship of an incapacitated parent in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and how it differs from a power of attorney (POA).
Legal Guardianship and Conservatorship for Incapacitated Parent Here's how to become a legal guardian and conservator to a parent who is incapacitated and can no longer take care of themselves.
These days, establishing a premarital agreement or “prenup” is relatively mainstream — but did you know there are also measures you can take after you’re married to protect your assets in the event of a divorce? A post-nuptial agreement allows couples to designate the division of assets in the event of a separation and specify who would be responsible for shared obligations such as children or pets.

Feeling hurt or angry in the aftermath of a divorce is normal. However, it's important not to let your negative feelings dictate your behavior as a parent. Emotions such as pain, frustration, and resentment are valid — but they should never jeopardize your child's happiness and future wellbeing.
Instead of letting your feelings about your child's other parent influence your behavior, try to find other outlets for those negative emotions. Talk to a friend or therapist, or try letting off steam through exercise, but never resort to venting to your child.
Navigating a child custody, visitation, or other family law case can exacerbate an already stressful situation. At My Legal Case Coach, we offer custom case form packets and 1:1 legal coaching services to help take the hassle out of your DIY legal case so you can focus on what matters most: your child.
