The difference between informal and formal probate

The probate process is something often affiliated with estate planning. Most people who think of probate don't really know much about it except that they want to avoid it. We hope that this post will help clarify the informal and formal probate process, as well as what types of estate planning tools could help avoid probate altogether.

You are in charge—and also liable—as executor of an estate

Let us say your uncle named you as the executor, or personal administrator, of his estate. Uncle Joe passed away unexpectedly, and you are suddenly in charge of winding up his affairs. This is a serious responsibility, and you can be considered liable for any missteps. Here are seven tips to help you succeed.

Stan Lee's death illustrates need for estate plan considerations

Recently, Stan Lee, the comic book mogul best known for creating much of the Marvel universe, passed away at the age of 95. Lee's 68-year-old daughter is his only surviving family member, as his wife had proceeded him in passing. Now, many are considering how the tumultuousness that surrounded Lee prior to his passing will affect the distribution of his estate.

Estate planning, long-term care, and long-term care insurance

Readers of this blog know that it is important to plan for the future. They also know that there are many aspects to estate planning. While much of the focus is on figuring out how to distribute assets upon one's death, there are also healthcare decisions that must be made. We have previously discussed powers of attorney, which can allow a trusted individual to be named to become responsible for your healthcare decisions in the event that you become incapacitated and can't make these decisions on your own. Yet, this is not the only consideration you may need to make when thinking about your healthcare in the context of estate planning.

How to approach hard assets in estate planning

It doesn't take a scientist or skilled financial planner to realize that estate planning can be tricky. After all, individuals are forced to think about their own mortality and make financial decisions that can have a major impact on the lives of others. In many instances, those who engage in estate planning simply want to split their assets amongst their identified heirs, which usually include children. While this may be easy to do with liquid assets like cash and stocks and bonds, it can be a much messier process when dealing with hard assets like heirlooms and art.
