When a loved one passes away, you are likely going to experience a range of emotions. This can make it difficult to think clearly and make important decisions; however, if your loved one's estate plan isn't the one that you were aware of, you might have to make a big decision now. Do you allow the estate plan to close out without alerting anyone about the issue or do you contest it?
Estate planning is a vital duty of being an adult. The first of the year is a good time to get this taken care of so you start the year off knowing that you've done what you could to protect your family if something happens to you. When you are doing this, make sure that you think carefully about what you are planning.
