The last thing surviving relatives want to think about when a loved one passes away is managing the affairs of the deceased’s estate. Amid the grief and sorrow, a comprehensive estate plan can help to eliminate these uncertainties and confusion over the probate administration and assist surviving relatives in handling their painful loss.
It is also imperative that family members are aware of where to find an estate plan and other important documents. The Wall Street Journal’s “25 Documents You Need Before You Die” highlights the ramifications of unorganized estate planning documents and notes the most important documents to keep handy. It provides a thorough guide on the steps to take to ensure your estate plan is carried out.
