The days, months and years following the death of a loved one can be very difficult. Not only are those left behind mourning their loss, there are often mountains of paperwork to deal with. While a bulk of estate settlement duties fall to executors, successor trustees or other fiduciaries, unanswered questions and unequal treatment of heirs can lead to confusion and hard feelings.
Placing restrictions on transfers of wealth and assets can lead to family squabbles — even lawsuits — after you are gone. While you may have very good reasons for treating your children or other heirs differently, consider the long-term ramifications your estate plan can have.
Talk with an estate planning attorney regarding the various estate planning options you have available. One, or a combination of options, may help your family stay on good terms with each other for years to come.
