Communication and your estate plan

If you are in the process of setting up an estate plan, many different concerns may be on the table. For example, you may be having a hard time deciding whether a trust or will is more appropriate, or you could be having difficulty naming an executor or figuring out how to divide your assets among beneficiaries. Often, you can develop a better understanding of the right decisions by talking with loved ones and those affected by your estate plan. Our law firm knows that effective communication is an important part of successful estate planning.

The importance of estate planning

When a resident of Ohio dies, matters of estate planning often need to be dealt with long before the grieving process is underway. As stated by the Summit County Probate Court, bills and taxes will be taken from the estate upon death, and then the rest is dispersed and executed based upon the will. Unfortunately, many people put off their estate planning or updates, leaving loved ones to try to figure out what the person would have wanted posthumously, which can lead to confusion, legal headaches and bitterness between the parties involved.
