8 Living Trust Forms

ISBN: 1940788048
Release Date: 2014-01-11
Genre:

One of the fastest ways to transfer property after your death is through a living trust because trusts are not required to go through probate court. In addition to saving time and avoiding probate costs, a trust lets you control who will receive property after you die. "8 Living Trust Forms" helps you create your own living trust forms to meet your needs. You'll discover how to: avoid probate, distribute property quickly, keep property distributions private, provide an alternative to creating a will, ensure your possessions will be distributed as you wish, reduce the potential family conflicts, and much more. For many people, a will is their first choice for passing on property to their loved ones, but it's not the only document that should be considered. Both a will and living trust contain your inheritance instructions, meaning they state who gets what property, when they will get it, and how they will get it. To create a living trust, a lawyer is not required or necessary, especially for simple living trusts. All you really need is a little bit of intelligence and the right information. A living trust can be an important part--and in some cases, the most important part--of your estate. A living trust can help ensure that your assets are managed according to your wishes, even if you become unable to manage the trusts yourself. Sample Living Trust Forms Include: Single Person Living Trust Married Living Trust Married AB Living Trust Florida Witness Statement for Living Trust Assignment of Property to a Living Trust Affidavit of Assumption of Duties by Successor Trustee Living Trust Amendment Revocation of Living Trust Checklist The Legal Self-Help Guide series provides information to those who want to understand their legal rights and responsibilities in an effort to resolve legal problems or know enough to feel confident in their decision to retain legal counsel. This Guide provides plain-English explanations as an alternative to the legal jargon that fills legal books. Express Your Rights.

Der Soziopath von nebenan

Release Date: 2010-11-10
Genre: Psychology

Wer ist der Teufel? Ist es Ihr Ex-Mann, der Sie belogen und betrogen hat? Ihr sadistischer Lehrer? Ihr Chef? Ihre Kollegin? Erschreckende vier Prozent unserer Mitmenschen - einer von 25 - weisen eine oft unerkannte Persönlichkeitsstörung auf, deren wichtigstes Symptom ein fehlendes Gewissen ist. Soziopathen empfinden weder Scham, Schuld noch Reue. Sie lieben nicht und lernen früh, Gefühle vorzutäuschen. Tatsächlich aber interessieren sie sich nicht für uns. Wie erkennen wir Soziopathen? Um uns gegen sie zu wappnen, lehrt Dr. Stout, Autorität in Frage zu stellen, Schmeichelei mit Skepsis zu begegnen und vor Rührseligkeit auf der Hut zu sein.

L ngengrad

Author: Dava Sobel
Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag
ISBN: 9783827072368
Release Date: 2010-09-11
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Längengrad erzählt die Geschichte des unbekannten schottischen Uhrmachers John Harrison, dem es im 18. Jahrhundert gelang, die Schiffahrt durch die Lösung des Längengrad-Problems auf neuen Kurs zu bringen. Bislang hatten sich die Seefahrer bei ihrer Navigation am Verlauf der Breitengrade orientiert. Eine Methode mit fatalen Folgen: Seefahrer und Fracht wurden leichte Beute von Seeräubern, die den Handelsschiffen auf den Breitengraden auflauerten. Zudem irrten die Schiffe fast orientierungslos auf den Weltmeeren umher und erreichten ihre Zielorte wenn überhaupt — eher zufällig. Die ohnehin langen Schiffahrten dauerten noch länger. Der gefürchtete Skorbut raffte nicht selten die Mannschaft dahin. Mit einem Wort: Handelsschiffahrt war ein Unternehmen auf Leben und Tod. Längengrad rekonstruiert die Geschichte einer wissenschaftlichen Gralssuche, eines Davidskampfes gegen die großen Astronomen jener Zeit. Galileo Galilei, Sir Isaac Newton und Edmond Halley suchten die Lösung des damals schwierigsten nautischen Problems in den Gestirnen. Anders John Harrison: 40 Jahre lang arbeitete er besessen an seiner Idee eines perfekten Chronometers. Trotz der Intrigen seiner Rivalen setzte sich Harrisons geniale Erfindung letztendlich durch. Schon der berühmte Seefahrer James Cook ließ sich auf seinen Expeditionen von Harrisons Uhr leiten und nannte sie seinen »zuverlässigsten Freund« und »nie versagenden Führer«.
