June is summer solstice and the month that has the most amount of daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.  It's also known as National Candy and Iced Tea Month.  We hope you enjoy clear skies, warmth, and our updates with some sweet tea.  

Choosing the right executor
First and foremost, just because you have been named in someone's Will as the Executor of their Estate does not mean that you are automatically the Executor as soon as that person has died.  Being named in someone's Will as their Executor only means that you have been nominated.  The probate court must appoint you as the Executor before you have legal power to pay that person's bills and distribute their money and property.  You cannot do that without the probate court's approval first.    Read full article.

Stop Lying to Yourself
Everyday, in some way, each of us begins each new day by lying to ourselves that nothing "bad" will happen to us today.  It's like its' part of our human nature.  We know that people are involved in accidents every day that end their lives or incapacitate them; that's just it, we tell ourselves that it will happen to someone else - not us.  However,  if everyone else is also saying that accidents, injuries, and death will happen to someone else, that "someone else" is you.  Read full article.

homestead versus mortgage
Homestead is a right to occupy one's primary residence. Homestead also has a set value of $120,000, which comes into play when creditors circle the waters.
