Can you challenge a will that you don't like?

You get a copy of your parents' will in the mail, after they pass away, and you simply do not like it. Some of the provisions do not sit well with you. Maybe it instructs you and your siblings to sell the house and divide the profits, when you wanted to keep the house. Maybe it gives money to a sibling that you know will simply waste that money, or perhaps it does not leave you as much as you expected.

Considerations as you select a guardian for your children

As part of your estate planning, you may need to pick out a legal guardian. If you pass away while the children are still minors, you know that someone will be there to take care of them. This person may also help transfer your estate to the kids as you designate. Young children have many financial needs, but this does not mean you want to leave all of your assets directly to a 10-year-old.
