Understanding law to manage your estate

Understanding the legal requirements for estate planning and probate for your state can help you plan accordingly. By knowing what the law requires, you can create an estate plan that is likely to stand up in court while coming as close to your wishes as possible. For example, in most states in the nation, you can purposefully leave a child or other heir out of your estate. The same isn't true for a spouse in most cases.

What does your estate attorney need to know about you?

Estate planning is often something people put off for many reasons. It's uncomfortable to talk about end of life matters. It's tedious to gather all of your financial and other information. It can be overwhelming to consider all of your legal options and possible responsibilities. In some cases, people might be wary of sharing information, even with a professional lawyer.
