How often should people update their wills?

Millions of Americans lose their lives each year. This heartbreaking time for family members is sometimes made even more difficult when people learn the deceased did not leave behind a will. In some cases, the person had a will, but he or she made it years ago to the point it is not applicable to today's circumstances. The best rule of thumb to follow is to review your will at least once a year to see if there is anything you would like to alter.

On its face, much of estate planning seems pretty self-explanatory and simple. Arizonans can even conduct a quick Internet search or visit their local book store and find a number of do-it-yourself and self-help resources that promise to help make estate planning easy. Although these resources may be helpful in educating you as to the basics of estate planning, in order to make a customized plan that is right for you it is wise to consult with an attorney who has years of experience handling estate planning issues. By doing so, you can decrease the risk of legal issues that could jeopardize the validity of your estate plan which could, in turn, threaten the financial well-being of your estate as well as your heirs and beneficiaries.

What is a living trust?

One of the great things about estate planning is that it is a customizable process. Depending on your needs and the way in which you want your assets distributed upon your death, you can tailor your estate plan accordingly. While this is a relief to many, it can also seem overwhelming to others as they may quickly become confused about the options available to them, or they may simply become too complacent to modify an estate plan to mirror their current situation. This can be problematic, which is why we strive to educate our readers about the many estate planning vehicles that they may utilize to further their and their estate's best interests.

Wills and the importance of witnesses

There are many legal tools available to Arizonans who are wanting to engage in estate planning. While many of these tools seem relatively easy to create, and there are even a number of self-help and do-it-yourself resources, these documents can actually raise significant legal issues when improperly handled. This is why it is always advisable to have an experienced legal professional assist in the drafting of these documents. Failing to do so could result in a lot of headache, heartache, time and money.

How to organize digital assets in estate planning

When creating a will, people know to include information about how to divide property and money. However, things are not so cut-and-dry when it comes to digital property. Social media accounts and other items that exist online are still relatively new to legal professionals, but it is important to divide these assets so the right people maintain them after your death. 

Two years after his death, Prince's estate still not distributed

Although legal professionals like us tend to harp on the importance of estate planning, some individuals fail to take notice until something bad happens to them or their loved ones. Stories about celebrities can be illustrative, too, as is the case of former pop singer Prince. Even though the artist died two years ago, his estate has yet to be distributed to heirs.
