  • Estate Planning Pothole: not planning after remarriage

    An estate planning pothole easy to avoid is not reviewing your estate plan after a remarriage. Frequently, we see where Mom or Dad remarries and leaves everything to the second spouse. When the second spouse dies, his or her children inherit everything and the children from the first marriage receive nothing.

  • How long will your estate plan last?

    Your estate plan will likely need to be updated at some point. An estate plan represents a snapshot of your life at the time you create the plan along with your state laws then in effect. Later changes in your life or the law can affect your estate plan.

  • Avoiding Probate

    The key to avoiding probate is making sure that you do not hold title to any assets in your name alone at the time of your death and for those assets where beneficiary designations are permitted, that you in fact name both a primary and a contingent beneficiary.
