Know the reasons to challenge a will before taking action

Going over the estate plan for a loved one is sometimes a challenging event. This is especially true when the plan is completely different from what you think it should be or from what you discussed with the person before they passed away. We understand that the shock of learning this might be more than what you can handle while you are already dealing with the death.

Think beyond the will and trusts for your estate plan

While many people think that estate planning is a chore, there are some amazing benefits to getting your affairs in order now. You can't focus on only getting the will written out. There are several other things that you need to include in your estate plan.

Could a living will benefit your estate plan?

Estate planning allows you to cover many bases relating to issues that could arise near the end of your life or after your death. Many individuals may think that an estate plan only provides information about how to distribute assets after a person's passing, but that is far from the reality of this process. As you work to create a comprehensive estate plan, you may wish to consider how it could apply to your health care near the end of your life.

Should I leave the same amount to all of my kids in my will?

Legal battle over baking magnate's estate continues

If you need a good reason to update your will or other estate planning documents, look no further than the battle currently embroiling a late businessman's wife and his children from our neighboring Maryland. The businessman may have left substantial assets when he passed away some months ago, but his widowed wife's portrayal of his estate does not seem to match the picture that his children presented of his finances after his death.
