My big brother died of COVID-19 and he didn’t have a will. He divorced 20 years ago and has no children, but his ex is telling me she should get an inheritance. Who has the right to his money?
The passing of a spouse is a devastating time in a person’s life and one that throws their world into turmoil. While in the midst of grieving, they’re confronted with a multitude of responsibilities requiring their attention — not only the immediate tasks of preparing for memorial services and notifying family and friends, but also beginning to tackle the requisite legal notifications and financial changes.
Without an estate plan in place, clients will be reliant on state laws and probate courts to appoint individuals who will be responsible for financial affairs and health-care decisions, in the case of illness and ultimately the transfer of assets upon death.
More and more often, estate beneficiaries are retaining their own attorneys to make sure that the executor properly administers the estate.
If there’s a family member or a friend in your life who refuses to do their will and get their estate in order, here are some tips to finally get them to take action.
