What if there are two different versions of my loved one's will?

When two different versions of a will exist, it can create confusion for the heirs and beneficiaries -- especially if the two versions set forth drastically different asset distribution plans. Not only does this create the potential for family in-fighting, but can also result in the wishes of the original creator of the will to not be adhered to.

The death of two stars brings up estate planning questions

The unfortunate deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade highlight the issue of estate planning when separated, but not yet divorced. In both of these tragic celebrity suicides, Kate and Bourdain had separated from their spouses. These cases reveal the complexities that can arise in such cases, when marital estate laws still apply, even though the couples weren't really together anymore as couples.

3 advantages offered by trusts in estate planning

If you've considered drafting a trust as a part of your estate plan, you probably have some specific trust benefits in mind. Indeed, while trusts might not be for everyone, from an estate planning perspective, these highly flexible documents offer their creators -- and their beneficiaries -- some distinct advantages over a traditional will.

Avoid these 2 estate planning mistakes

Everyone needs an estate plan – even people who don't have any personal assets. This is because estate plans cover more than just financial concerns. An estate plan will designate who will care for your children in the event of your incapacitation or death. For that matter, an estate plan will also establish who will care for you – with regard to your medical and financial decisions – if you're too ill or injured to make such decisions for yourself.
