As you probably know, the "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin passed away on August 16 after a long bout with pancreatic cancer. The singer, a mother of four, never made an estate plan, leaving her "intestate," which means died without a will. Now her four children, including a son with special needs, will have to go to court to have her estate probated and these matters will no longer be kept private. Additionally, according to her state's law, when a person dies without a Last Will and Testament the assets of an unmarried mother are divided equally among her children.
WHO SHOULD BE YOUR EXECUTOR?
It's almost time for the Super Bowl and Tom Brady and Nick Foles have their game plans in place. What about you, though? Do you have your estate plans in place for your big game?
Happy New Year!
