Local ordinance forces businesses to shut out the lights in NC

A city in North Carolina has passed a law that limits the amount of light a business can use after the sun goes down. The law was written to reduce the amount of light pollution and allow for increased star gazing opportunities. Unfortunately, the law may have some unintended consequences.

Unintended consequence #1: Safety.

Lights are an important safety concern. Illuminating an otherwise dark corner or passageway can reduce the risk of an accident or criminal activity.

In addition to simply illuminating otherwise dark areas, many businesses have outdoor spaces that are part of their operations. These businesses need proper lighting for their patrons and staff.

How long do I have to wait for my inheritance?

After the death of a family member, there may be numerous reasons why you would want the probate process for his or her estate to end quickly. You may have traveled from outside North Carolina and want to return to your home state. Perhaps you are counting on an inheritance the deceased promised you. It could be that you suspect the process is taking longer than it should, and you want to know what the holdup may be.

If you have never gone through the probate process before, you may be unfamiliar with its purpose and the reason it sometimes takes a considerable amount of time. It may help to have an understanding of the steps your relative's estate must pass through and the factors that may bog the process down.
