Can a trust help retirees with distribution of assets?

Discussing death and other unexpected life changes are troubling thoughts for Pennsylvanians. Here in Kennett Square, many residents, and retirees in particular, are now planning their estates to ensure that properties and assets will be distributed among their rightful heirs when they die. However, choosing which estate planning tool best fits a person's situation can be more than a matter of preference.

How wills and trusts aid estate planning

Pennsylvanians know that the future is full of uncertainty, and that the only way to prepare for the worst-case scenarios in life, including incapacitation and death, is to do estate planning. Some people consider estate planning as a tool used exclusively by wealthy individuals. It turns out that anyone who owns an estate - whether a car, a boat or a house - can craft a will and name someone to act as guardian, executor or heir.

Paul Walker's last will can be subject of probate litigation

Local residents of Chester County, Pennsylvania, who enjoy watching the 'Fast & Furious' movie franchise, may still recall the tragic car accident that claimed the life of actor Paul Walker. Following the fatal accident, readers may be curious about the late actor's estate, which has been valued at around $25 million.

Planning for the life of an estate after a testator's death

Life can end at any time. Philadelphia residents know that unexpected occurrences like traffic accidents or serious medical conditions can instantly end their lives and change the lives of surviving family members. A sudden death can leave family members grieving, but their pain can be much worse if the deceased failed to plan for their future.
