Three ways parents can use estate plans to protect their children

The world changes once you become a parent. Instead of taking steps only to protect your own future and the future of your spouse, you now have to take steps to protect your children. With a few steps you can put a plan in place that will better ensure a good upbringing, no matter what the future may hold.

Trust administration can have its complications

Trusts can act as useful protection for assets, especially ones that need distributing after a person's death. When the time comes to handle those remaining assets, the successor trustee has the responsibility of following instructions involved with administering the trust.

Going beyond a will is typically wise for estate planning

Creating an estate plan is on many New York residents' to-do lists, but it is often near the bottom or constantly having other tasks placed above it. You may think that you have plenty of time to create your plan or may even think that you already have a plan because you created a will. However, an estate plan can -- and typically needs to -- go beyond just a will.

Does your family know what you want your funeral to be like?

A large part of estate planning is making your wishes known even when you can no longer express them on your own. Whether you prepare for the possibility of incapacitation or for your death, you want to make sure to complete certain tasks in the manner in which you desire.

Important factors to consider when choosing an executor

You may have already begun your estate planning journey and have done a deep dive into a self-assessment. You may have had to answer many tough questions so far, but still, you have not completed the entirety of the process. Though you may have many aspects of your final affairs in order, you still need to choose a person who will handle those affairs on your behalf.

Is there such a thing as “too much” inheritance?

A recent publication in The Atlantic estimates over 1.4 million American households hold over $5 million in assets. With such large wealth in the country, many are starting to ask whether there is such a thing as “too much” inheritance. For many wealthy families, the question stems from a concern that future generations should be encouraged to be productive members of society instead of planning for a future of financial stability thanks to the cushion of a large inheritance.
