Managing the school's legal risks
In some cases, a property dispute may be bubbling under the surface waiting to happen. You may have made some changes to your property such as constructed a fence, planted a tree or designed a kerb that infringed on your neighbour's land. At the time of selling your home, such disputes are bound to spring to life and complicate the sales process.
In addition, potential buyers of your home will most certainly shy away from the purchase if they know they are walking into trouble.
Money can often be a cause of significant arguments between two sensible people. Unfortunately, it can trigger arguments between married couples that lead to separation and divorce. As if this wasn't bad enough, an unexpected "windfall" can come along while a dispute is working its way through legal channels and make things even more complex. If you or your former partner have recently won the lottery or received a significant and unexpected lump sum, how is this likely to affect negotiations?
The business world is becoming increasingly complex. In the past, all you needed to operate a successful business was an outstanding product/service that you could present to your customers.

Therefore, the penalties imposed on parties found guilty can be severe, depending on the circumstances and the amount of money involved. As implied, insurance fraud refers to the action of deceiving an insurer for illicit financial gain.
This type of offence often looks insignificant from a personal point of view since the gains are usually small.
Marriage does not last as long as it did when your grandparents were young, with the average marriage currently lasting 12.1 years. As parents split up, it is not uncommon for men and women to find new long-term relationships that become de facto living arrangments or second marriages. The story of Daniel Leverton's de facto and her inheritance of his estate made news headlines recently because his children did not receive the lion's share.
