How to help your children through divorce

Like most good parents in South Carolina, your children's best interests are among your highest priorities. When you decided to divorce, you may have intensified your focus on this particular priority.

That is okay; you just have to be careful not to make certain mistakes that could cost you in the long run.

Problems with your estate plan can be problems for loved ones

South Carolina readers know that estate planning is a smart step for everyone, regardless of income level or the amount of personal assets. However, having an estate plan in place may not be effective due to mistakes and other issues. It could be beneficial for you to review your plans and take steps to ensure you avoid certain errors in the estate-planning process.

Does your post-surgical x-ray look like it's from a horror movie?

You probably have heard stories about surgeons leaving objects behind in patients after surgery, but you never thought it could happen to you.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere: That might place you at risk for injury

Are you a Jimmy Buffett fan? If so, then the song lyric contained in the title of this post is likely familiar to you. If not, you may have heard it in reference to after-work drinks or reasons to pop a cold beer even if it's early afternoon wherever you happen to be. It's true that after 5 o'clock, there may be more drunk drivers on the road, making extra caution necessary while you're driving home from work or heading out on the town with friends.
