Naming a guardian for your child? Read this first

The moment that you became a parent, you knew that you wanted to do everything in your power to protect your child's future. That includes making sure that you've named a guardian for your child, just in case an accident or illness steals you away before they're grown.

Creating a business succession plan

If you are the owner of a successful business, you'll likely want to ensure that your business will continue to thrive for many generations to come. Your business has the possibility to be one of the greatest legacies that you'll leave behind, and that's why it is vital that it's placed in competent hands.

What types of executor actions may warrant you suing them?

When someone first meets with their estate planning attorney to discuss drafting a will, one of the first things the lawyer asks their client is to identify someone that they can trust to serve as their executor. Estate planning attorneys often encourage their clients to be honest about the responsibilities that they'll be expected to take on as an executor. There's a good reason that attorneys ask their clients to do this. An executor may expose themselves to legal liability if they don't do what they're supposed to.

How do you keep the kids from fighting over your estate?

You thought that the sibling rivalry between your children was pretty rough to handle when they were young but thought it would fade. Instead, your adult children have become more deeply entrenched in their rivalry than ever. In fact, they can be downright antagonistic toward each other.
