Considerations when selling real estate to family members

Placing a house on the market is often a stressful project. After all the preparations to make the home attractive to potential buyers, the house may sit on the market for months or longer before a serious offer comes in. Some West Virginia home sellers are fortunate when a family member offers to purchase the house. However, they may question whether the steps they take in this family transaction should be very different from a real estate transaction between strangers.

Family law: Steps for stepparent adoption

When West Virginia families blend, it is possible that a child may develop a strong relationship with his or her stepparent. This bond can be frustrating because a stepparent typically has no legal rights concerning the children of his or her spouse. While the adoption of a stepchild can be a wonderful option in some cases where the stepparent has already taken on the role of a parent, it involves some difficult elements of family law.

Psychologists and counselors on the front lines of relationship battles hear many of the same complaints from couples seeking their counsel.
