What can I expect from my Michigan adoption process?

Do you know the differences in procedures between a private and a public foster adoption?

Why a power of attorney completes your estate plan

Is your Michigan estate plan really complete? Many of our clients think that all they need is a will, and their estate planning is squared away.

One of the most important elements of a solid estate plan: a written power of attorney.

Who qualifies for COBRA insurance in Michigan?

So, you have lost your job because of a layoff -- what now? Although you have probably taken action to obtain unemployment benefits, you may not realize that your health insurance is also about to expire. You can protect yourself and your family by utilizing the COBRA continuation of benefits insurance program, which allows for the continuation of health care benefits even after you leave a company. COBRA is available for those who have been fired or who have chosen to quit their jobs, as well. Employees who do not qualify include those who have been fired because of gross misconduct such as gender discrimination and other types of workplace discrimination.

Independent contractor? Think twice about unemployment benefits

Did you know that you could be eligible for unemployment benefits, no matter your reason for losing your Michigan job?

If you have lost your job for any reason other than misconduct, you may be eligible for these benefits. This may even be true for some Michigan residents who have traditionally been classified as independent contractors, according to recent case law.
