Today Republican Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine announced that she would not seek re-election to a new 6-year term. She pointed to the inability to progress in the face of political ideologues. “As I enter a new chapter, I see a vital need for the political center in order for our democracy to flourish and to find solutions that unite rather than divide us.

I intend to help give voice to my… read more →

To remove a minor’s guardian, the court is going to be looking for circumstances that indicate the minor would be better off with a different guardian.

The court might be more willing to modify the existing order first, and then look further to see if a change needs to be made. If it’s absolutely essential, a guardian can be removed by the Court for any of the following reasons, per the probate code: (a) Failure… read more →
