With Bobbie Kristina's passing, questions raised over who will inherit $20 million estate

In February of 2012, the world mourned the loss of undoubtedly one of the best female vocalists ever. As fans remembered Whitney Houston for her many contributions to the music world, her 18-year-old daughter Bobbie Kristina struggled to make sense of and cope with the tragic loss of her mother in an apparent drug-related accidental bathtub drowning.

The value of charitable giving in estate planning

Whether it's donating time at a local shelter, raising money to help fight a disease or exerting energy to build homes for those in need, people from all walks of life choose to make charitable endeavors an important part of their everyday lives.

Alterations and challenges to will can create issues

One of the great misunderstandings about estate plans is that people think an estate plan is a single document, a self-contained contract that outlines everything and anything relating to an individual's estate. To the contrary, estate plans are made up of many different documents, provisions and contracts -- and one of these documents is the will.

Is a will contestable in New York?

Unless you went to law school like we did, you're probably like a majority of people across New York and only have a basic understanding of the law. Unfortunately, a basic understanding of the law does you little good when it comes to really important legal matters, such as drafting an estate plan. That's because not knowing the specifics of the law means you are likely to make costly mistakes -- ones that could be avoided if you fully understood the law or had obtained a lawyer's services.
