Potential problems for wills

Washington residents who have taken the prudent step of creating their estate plan should be able to feel confident that their plans will be executed as they have outlined. However, that may not necessarily happen so easily in all cases. There are some specific situations in which people may be able to file legitimate contests to a person's will. Understanding these is important to ideally prevent from being in this situation.

Neighbor disputes: is there a solution?

Confrontations and disagreements are two experiences most Seattle residents would prefer to avoid. But what if such incidents are simply unavoidable? The background noise of city life is one that is typically ignored, yet there are other distractions that can make doing so especially difficult. As with most states, Washington generally cannot become involved in neighbor disputes. However, there are ways to to minimize such predicaments that can help individuals avoid the involvement of a third party altogether.

Remarriages and estate planning

If you are one of the many people in Washington State whose upcoming nuptials represent a second or subsequent trip down the aisle for either you or your future spouse, it is essential that you pay attention to your long-term estate planning. There are multiple potential pitfalls of ignoring this in your situation and one of the biggest is the possibility of family discord after you or your spouse die.

Navigating inheritance disputes

Any close family member's death can bring dark and distressing times, especially when that family member left behind a will that the surviving family do not agree upon. Some individuals dealing with the death of a family member in Seattle are shocked when they discover that other immediate family received a larger inheritance than their own. This conflict is difficult to tackle because the writer of the will inevitably cannot clarify details, and those attempting to find a solution may fight for their rights to inheritance for years.
