What should I consider when choosing a power of attorney?

A power of attorney is a person you appoint to make health care decisions on your behalf. This might be necessary after a prolonged, life-threatening illness or if you've been involved in a serious accident and can no longer make decisions on your own. Because choosing the right person is crucial to your peace of mind, Very Well Health offers the following advice.

My co-worker is spreading lies, what can I do?

While you aren't obligated to get along with all your co-workers, lying or spreading rumors about someone at work is a very serious issue. That's why it can be so traumatizing when it happens to you, as your reputation may be tarnished by any untruths spoken about you. This is considered slander, and as the Houston Chronicle explains, there are certain steps you and others can take to deal with the issue. 

Will New York enforce a no-contest clause?

As you work through the estate planning process in New York, the potential for discord to arise amongst your beneficiaries will no doubt come to mind. The last thing that you want is to see your estate's administration cause a rift between those that you love. Being transparent with your actions and open about your decision as you are preparing your estate planning instruments may help to avoid beneficiary disputes. There is, however, no guarantee that someone will not be completely satisfied with their designated stake in your estate (or the circumstances under which you made its stipulations), and will not then decide to contest your will.
