Proper estate planning may avoid probate litigation

Making proper plans for your estate is vital for any adult. Some adults seem to think that they have more time to plan their estate, but that isn't always the case. The death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is continuing to highlight the importance of proper estate planning at an early age. A recent development with his estate has to do with some documents that Harry Belafonte says Dr. King gave him before his death.

Estate planning involves more than just making a will

Planning your estate isn't something that you should do without putting a lot of thought into it. You have to decide what will happen to your belongings once you pass away. You also have to determine what you want to happen as part of your end-of-life care. Failing to plan properly is one of the biggest mistakes you can make when you are taking care of your estate planning documents.

Michigan same-sex couples see estate planning benefits

Michigan's same-sex couples have gone through a roller coaster ride of legal changes in recent weeks, though the most recent development is certainly a positive one. An announcement in late March solidifies same-sex couples' rights under federal law. Even though the state of Michigan does not recognize same-sex marriage, those in such committed relationships will now be eligible for estate planning perks such as estate tax benefits.
