How much should the executor of a California estate plan be paid?

Your older sister was named the executor of your father's estate. Your dad was your last living parent. You were fine with her having that job. She's a retired realtor who at one point in her life worked on Wall Street. Therefore, she had the time and the skills to handle the job.

3 ways estate planning can keep the family together

A death in the family is difficult enough, but when inheritance arguments erupt, it can result in the disintegration of the entire family. Fortunately, most estate planning attorneys are well-armed with various strategies to plan an estate in a way that limits the chances of family infighting.

Don't just lock away your advance health care directive

An advance health care directive is one of the most crucial elements in your estate plan. Even if you don't have a full estate plan in place, by having this document, you can let your medical providers know about your wishes regarding what measures you want taken (or not taken) to keep you alive if you suffer a serious injury or illness and are unable to speak for yourself.
