Start an estate planning conversation in the holidays

Families in Pennsylvania understand that in a family with adult children, having everyone together in one place is difficult. When they are all together to celebrate an occasion, death and incapacity don't usually come up as topics of conversation. However, the holiday season is an opportunity not only for a get-together but also for a family to discuss important matters such as estate planning.

Assigning the right trustee to avoid estate mismanagement

Most Pennsylvanians know that when people die, control of their estates passes to someone left behind. To ensure the estate goes directly to the person's heirs and is not delayed by state-mandated probate, wills are drawn up. So if someone wants to make sure a competent person looks after his or her wealth and protects the interest heirs, what do they do?

Choosing a trustee for a troubled heir can help

Disinheriting a family member is a difficult decision. Here in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, some residents may feel conflicted about whether or not to transfer properties to loved ones after death. Leaving a legacy is important, in part, because it gives the recipient something to remind him or her about the testator. Nevertheless, it can cause profound heartache to the surviving family member who did not receive an inheritance.
