When people pass away before creating an estate plan

The estate planning process can seem complex and time-consuming, which causes some people to push off setting up a will or creating a trust. Moreover, some people may believe that they are too young for an estate plan and that they have many decades of life ahead of them. Unfortunately, unexpected problems can arise at any time, from a serious health crisis (such as a terminal cancer diagnosis) to an unforeseen accident that claims a life far too soon. As a result, it is important for you to set up an estate plan if you are worried about how your estate will be distributed to loved ones after you pass away.

A look at testamentary trusts

When it comes to trusts, there are many different options for people to choose from. However, it is essential to find out which trust will suit your needs best. In this blog, we will examine some of the ins and outs of testamentary trusts, which can be a bit confusing at first glance. These trusts offer a number of benefits for some people and help them ensure that their assets are passed on to their loved ones properly. As with any type of estate-related issue, it is imperative to make sure you thoroughly review the details beforehand.

International assets and your estate plan

Estate planning can be very complex and this is true for almost everyone who decides to set up a plan, whether they move ahead with a will or decide that a trust is the better option. For some people, estate planning can be even more complicated, however. For example, some people own property outside of the U.S., which can make setting up an estate plan even trickier for various reasons. If you have international assets or are dealing with other international issues that could impact your estate plan (citizenship, beneficiaries living overseas, etc.), it is especially important for you to carefully approach this process.

Calculating the value of an estate

The probate process can be tricky for a number of reasons and those who have been placed in charge of an estate plan often have a number of responsibilities, some of which may seem overwhelming. In this post, we will look into the importance of correctly calculating the value of an estate, an issue that can be quite challenging in some instances. Some estates are relatively modest and others may involve a significant amount of assets, which can make valuation even more difficult. However, this is an essential aspect of the probate process.
