Older parents with young children should consider estate planning

As we get older, estate planning becomes an even more important necessity. Without a solid plan in place to distribute your assets, your loved ones may not have access to your property upon your death. Legendary musician Billy Joel, at the age of 68, recently announced that he is expecting his second child with his wife. With a baby on the way, plus his two other children, ages 31 and 2, Joel has certain things to consider due to being an older parent to young kids.

Can I make changes to my trust?

Arizona residents who have started the estate planning process may be concerned that they will not be able to make changes to their trusts once they are finalized. Fortunately, most trusts are both revocable and amendable, so you may be able to make multiple changes to your trust over time, or cancel it altogether. However, trusts are legal instruments, so the terms of the trust will dictate what you can do with it.

Avoid these estate planning pitfalls

As you start thinking about the future, you may start to plan the distribution of your property to your beneficiaries when you pass away. However, many people make the mistake of ignoring seemingly small or insignificant pieces of personal property. If you want your family to divide up your assets peacefully, you need to avoid these mistakes as you draft your will and other estate planning documents.

Hugh Heffner's estate - who gets what?

People of all levels of wealth need to create a plan to distribute their assets upon their death. Hugh Heffner, the founder of Playboy Magazine who recently passed away, used estate planning to ensure his loved ones were taken care of when he passed away. At 91-years-old, Heffner had an estate valued over $40 million as well as $100 million from the sale of his home earlier this year. In the 1970s, the estate was worth over $200 million (equaling over $1 billion today).
