Avoid these common pitfalls in estate planning

Estate planning attorneys are finding that people are increasingly drafting wills and other estate documents at younger ages than in the past. The unexpected deaths of so many celebrities last year got a lot of people thinking about their own mortality sooner than they might have otherwise. The widespread coverage of terrorist attacks and other violent events that costs people of all ages their lives can have the same impact.

Defending your role as trustee when it is challenged in court

Very few people actually seek to become an executor of an estate or the trustee of a trust that becomes active after someone dies or becomes incapacitated. It is a dubious honor, typically unpaid, that can create a lot of personal stress as well as interpersonal conflicts.

When can beneficiaries seek to remove a trustee?

Choosing someone to manage a trust is one of the most significant estate planning decisions you'll make. This is particularly true if you've set up a trust to provide for family members, both while you're still alive and after you're gone.

Detailing your wishes for ending your life

One of the areas covered in many Californians' estate plans is what actions they want and don't want taken to extend their lives if they are unable to speak for themselves. These can be spelled out in detail in an Advance Health Care Directive and overseen by a health care power of attorney. In California, the Natural Death Act allows people to be removed from devices and not undergo procedures that would keep them alive if they choose.
