Should art be a part of your estate plan?

To paraphrase an old saying, one person’s art can be another person’s trash. Not everyone is smitten with the Mona Lisa, for instance, and some people adore and others loath the reality-bending Cubist paintings of Pablo Picasso. While taste and preferences are entirely subjective, there is no doubt that the Spanish master’s works are worth millions of dollars.

Giving the gift of the future

As Baby Boomers move in to their 60s and 70s, they are increasingly focused on the future. A recent Forbes article states that the 2018 U.S. Trust Insights on Wealth and Worth Study shows that two-thirds of people over the age of 50 want to use their wealth to better the lives of their children and grandchildren.

Avoid these two common estate planning errors

One of the things people traditionally do at the end of the year is look back and assess the past 12 months and then look forward and plan for the coming dozen.

Tips for creating a will that won’t spark family arguments

If only all families were perfect: If everyone got along perfectly and agreed on everything, then there would be no need to worry when creating your will. However, no family is perfect. Siblings and other relatives who usually get along just fine may come to loggerheads when it comes to a loved one’s estate.

Can disinheritance be a good thing?

When most people hear the word “disinheritance,” they imagine a family rift that caused a parent to write a child out of the will. In some cases, this is true. A parent may feel the need to disinherit a spendthrift child to prevent them from squandering the family fortune. An argument may prompt someone to disinherit their kin. But in other cases, disinheritance is a useful tool that can actually help protect a beloved child’s inheritance.
