If you're planning to buy a home, you may notice that the settlement process can now take place virtually. This is still a relatively new solution, but it makes it a lot easier for all parties to communicate and finalise affairs rather than having to meet in one physical location. Yet, a conveyancer must verify identification for this process to work as it should. This step is paramount as the individual parties will not be physically present when important documents are signed and money changes hands.
If you're going through a divorce and have long since separated from your former partner, you may wonder if any money you received since you split would be taken into account during settlement. You may imagine that inheritance money or something similar should be kept out of the mix as it was received when you were effectively single and should not form part of the property. However, there's more to this situation than meets the eye, and you need to consider several factors as you determine your best approach.
"Justice delayed is justice denied" is a maxim commonly used in legal corridors, and it means that legal redress, if available, should be administered in good time. One way to ensure justice is delivered is to confirm that a respondent receives the necessary legal documents quickly. Instead of tasking your lawyer to deliver legal documents, you can rely on the services of a 24-hour country process server. The service providers can deliver legal documents anywhere in the country and at any time.
Most people will only deal with deceased estates when they become the beneficiary of that estate. If you are the beneficiary of a recently noted deceased estate, you may be confused about where to begin. Here are some of the key points you should know and what you should know about them. Knowing these points will help when you visit the deceased estate lawyer and begin filing paperwork and other necessary steps in the estate process.
When the decision to divorce is a mutual one, you and your spouse can file a joint application. This is one of the first steps of the process. Any issues about the division of assets, ongoing financial support, and custody arrangements for any children will be determined at a later stage during mediation. However, the decision isn't always so mutual, and you might need to serve your spouse with divorce documents.
Hello, all. I am a volunteer worker at an outreach centre which helps people of all ages with financial problems. I have come to realise that many of these people face hardships due to life-changing incidents such as unfair dismissal, a workplace injury or a car accident. Many of them are hard workers who aren’t aware of their legal rights. Last year, our outreach centre brought a lawyer on board to provide legal advice and assistance. I help by scheduling appointments, taking notes and following up on each case. I have learnt an awful lot about our laws and am impressed how knowing the right legal avenues can change people’s lives. I have just started a legal assistant’s course and thought this blog might be a good place to record the knowledge I gain. I hope you find it useful and insightful. Thank you for stepping into my world.
