The importance of creating a will cannot be overstressed. It is one of the best gifts you can leave your loved ones in the event of your death, and the only opportunity to ensure that your property and other assets go to the people and or organizations you wish to benefit. Additionally, you can select the persons you wish to administer your estate, or even appoint guardians for your minor children.
Creating a Living Will is just as important as creating a regular Will. A Living Will allows you to determine your wishes for your own care in the event that you become permanently unconscious, terminally ill, or otherwise incapacitated. Unlike a regular will, which takes affect at your death, a living will allows you to speak for yourself regarding certain medical directives while you are still alive.

The parole revocation process begins with an alleged violation. If you have been accused of violating a condition of parole, a blue warrant will likely be issued for your arrest. Once arrested, the parolee will normally wait in jail pending the revocation hearing.
During the revocation hearing, the burden of proof lies with the parole officer to prove his or her case. He or she will have an opportunity to testify and provide evidence to support his or her allegations to the alleged violated offenses. Once the parole officer has concluded, the parolee has the right to put forth his or her own defense as to why the alleged parole violations are unfounded, or founded but should be mitigated.
Once both sides have presented their case, the hearing officer will consider the testimony and evidence offered by both sides and make a determination as to whether there is a preponderance of the evidence to show that the parolee has violated at least one condition of parole. If the hearing officer finds that the preponderance of credible evidence shows the parolee did in fact violate at least one condition of parole, the hearing then moves to the adjustment phase.
During the adjustment phase, the parole officer will present evidence of how the parolee has performed on parole before the alleged violation occurred. This evidence will consist in part of the adjustment statement which will indicate how the parolee has performed on parole to date with regards to fees, fines, and restitution. It will address whether the parolee is attending any classes as prescribed and his or her performance, whether there is a history of drug use, and whether the parolee has complied with any special conditions. The adjustment phase also addresses where the parolee will reside upon their release and whether that address has been verified, whether the parolee can be placed on electronic monitoring or continued electronic monitoring supervision, or whether the parolee qualifies for ISF (Intermediate Sanction Facility).
The parolee will also have an opportunity to introduce his or her own evidence in the form of affidavits, letters, and witness testimony as to how he or she has performed while on parole. Once concluded, the parole officer will make a recommendation to the hearing officer. The hearing officer will prepare his or her report, include all evidence, and his or her recommendation to the Parole Board. The Parole Board will review the case file, including all evidence, testimony and recommendations and render a decision normally between two and three weeks.
