Thought of the day 594

October 3, 2015

Disharmony among family members at the time of trust or estate administration is simply not worth it.  Will contests can take two years or more and cost into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and trust litigation is extremely expensive as well.  And this does not account for the personal costs involved.  All this to say that thoughtfulness and deliberateness in the planning process, while making all efforts to consider the thoughts and feelings of all family members to gain consensus and harmony, can save the estate from senseless depletion.
