While people in Nevada and across the country continue to hear reports about Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the uncertain future of American health care is having an immediate effect on married couples who are planning to divorce.

Approaching your loved one about a guardianship

When it comes to aging loved ones, it can be difficult to come to terms with their decreasing capabilities. They might need more help with daily tasks, or perhaps they suffered an injury such as a fall. Signs like these are an indication that something should be done to protect their health and well-being, and for many familiar, a guardianship is the right approach.
