Till death do us part: Waiving your elective share

A spouse’s “elective share” refers to his or her legal right under state law to choose to receive a specific, fixed share of the other spouse’s estate at death in lieu of receiving what was (or wasn’t) left to the surviving spouse under the deceased spouse’s will. Broadly, the concept of the elective share evolved to protect surviving spouses from disinheritance, which was particularly important historically when almost all wives were homemakers without careers. 

A shot of conflict: Vaccine disputes in divorced Florida families

Floridians sometimes have differences of opinion about whether vaccinations are safe for children. When a divorcing, divorced or unmarried parent’s belief about whether vaccinations are in the best interests of his or her children conflict with that of the other parent, it is a good idea to talk to an attorney about legal issues and potential legal remedies, depending on the circumstances.
