Does it matter where you file for divorce?

In today’s globally mobile society, some families are taking advantage of work-from-home options, telecommuting and other flexible working schedules so they can live and work from where they choose. The benefits of such schemes means people can move more freely without worrying about losing a sustainable job they love.

Redbox gains an upperhand in business litigation against Disney

Most California movie watchers are familiar with The Walt Disney Co. The entertainment giant and Redbox, a movie rental company, have been battling out a few issues in court. The business litigation appears to have tipped the scales to Redbox's favor following a federal judge's recent ruling. A central focus of the legal dispute is whether Redbox has infringed upon Disney's rights by selling download codes for Disney movies in its red kiosks, stationed at various locations throughout the country.

Daughter of deceased business mogul claims power of attorney

California estate owners and future beneficiaries may want to pay close attention to a particular probate battle as it unfolds in court. The situation involves an adult child of the now-deceased former CEO of Bendix Corporation, William M. Agee, who is fighting her stepmother over her father's estate. The stepmother, Mary Cunningham Agee, claims her husband was no longer in his right mind when he reportedly changed his estate plan weeks before his death to give his daughter power of attorney.

Are real estate disputes delaying your landscaping plans?

Many California homeowners enjoy making improvements on their property. If a neighbor or neighbors objects to a proposed improvement plan, perhaps claiming a new fence or line of trees would encroach over property lines or a shared road easement, etc., things can quickly escalate into bitter real estate disputes. When that happens, it may takes weeks or months to resolve the issues at hand.

Child custody often a challenging aspect of California divorce

California parents are like most others in that their central focus in life is the overall well-being of their children. Significant responsibilities and obligations go hand-in-hand with parenting. That's why divorces involving parents can be especially challenging, particularly if spouses disagree on child custody issues.

Estate planning and business succession often go hand in hand

It's understandable that California business owners and others who worked long and hard to get their companies off the ground are concerned about the future -- namely, how to protect the legacies they've worked so hard to build. Many prudent business owners also think ahead, knowing there will come a time when they are deceased or no longer able to head their companies due to mental or physical decline. Executing a solid business succession plan ahead of time and working it into an estate plan may be the best means for protecting assets and ensuring the continuation of a business.
