Family, Estates & Trusts

Family Law covers issues that can have a major impact on individual’s lives.  Family involves emotionally charged issues such as child custody battles, division of assets during a divorce as well as wills, and what happens when they are contested.  The National Law Review is a free resource and can provide information to individuals confronting these difficult issues, and is a great place to start gathering information. 

Divorce, Child Custody & Adoption

The dissolution of a marriage is an emotionally charged legal situation, with a variety of factors that must be considered based on each individual’s situation, the laws of the states involved, and the circumstances of the dissolution.  Additionally, the presence (or lack thereof) of a prenuptial agreement has a significant impact on the proceedings, as well as the attitudes of the parties exiting the marriage.  Division of a variety of assets must be considered before a divorce is final; including assets like Trusts, 401Ks, and Military Pensions.  The National Law Review provides overviews of the process and can give readers an idea of what to expect throughout the divorce process.  The attorneys who write for the National Law Review are experts who regularly provide legal analysis of a variety of scenarios that can impact divorce proceedings.

If children are involved in a divorce, the situation can become much more complicated.  With that in mind, the National Law Review has expert analysis on child custody situations and scenarios, as well as information on how parents can approach these issues with their children’s best interests in mind.  With the high stakes in these legal proceedings, the National Law Review’s legal experts and writers have considered a variety of scenarios and can provide insight into what to expect for some of these situations. 

Additionally, legal issues related to adoption are also covered on the site; especially as it relates to discrimination against same-sex in adoption proceedings by agencies as state laws change.

Estate Planning and Wills

The National Law Review also covers issues related to estate plans and wills. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and IRS policy changes, updates to estate planning strategies and trust administration is available on the site.  Additionally, visitors can also find information about gift/estate taxes and analysis of the changes brought by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Additionally, unusual legal situations like challenging a previously concealed will and other situations that require thoughtful planning, such as estate planning for beneficiaries with special needs, are addressed by legal experts on the National Law Review’s site.

Personal Injury 

Personal injury news is also covered in the National Law Review.  Topics including wrongful death, birth injuries, e-cigarette injuries, abuse in a nursing home setting, hospital injuries, slip and fall cases, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), among others.  The legal experts who write for the National Law Review have extensive experience in personal injury cases, holding individuals and corporations responsible for their negligent conduct, and provide expert analysis of a variety of situations for NLR readers.
