Philip Seymour Hoffman's sudden death leads to estate plan problems

Life is short and unpredictable. This sentiment is repeated so often that it has become cliché and few of us stop to truly think about what it means practically. But Americans were recently given a somber reminder of its meaning with the unexpected death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was widely considered one of the greatest actors of our time.

Estate planning advice for complex families

Today, it's difficult to define a so-called typical American family. In years past, most American families readily consisted of a husband, wife and children. By contrast, today's families may include a husband his third wife and several step children and half siblings. In most cases, the more complex a family's structure, the more confusing and complex the estate planning process can become. For these reasons, individuals in a blended family would be wise to seek the advice and assistance of an estate planning attorney when trying to provide for a current spouse, biological children and step-children.

Clear documentation helps avoid disputes over wills and trusts

Back in November, we wrote about a legal dispute over a very valuable piece of artwork left in a deceased actress' estate. When longtime Hollywood celebrity Farrah Fawcett passed away in 2009, she left a rather extensive art collection to the University of Texas. This was documented in a revocable living trust.
