Trusts can be an important part of a personal estate plan

This New Jersey estate planning law blog has strongly advocated that any person, regardless of his personal wealth, can benefit from having an estate plan. But what should a person include in that plan? It can be overwhelming for an individual to work through the creation of his own estate plan, and for that reason many individuals chose to solicit the help of estate planning attorneys to help them create well-crafted estates.

Estate administration can be a complicated process

When an individual asks a friend, family member, or trusted advisor to serve as the executor of his estate, he may believe that he is bestowing a great honor on the selected individual. While individuals who are chosen to undertake estate administration duties on behalf of others are often picked because of their tendency to be responsible and upstanding, being an estate's executor is a lot of work. In Moorestown and communities all throughout the country, estate administrators can see their jobs last for months and even into years depending on the details of the relevant estates.

What mistakes are common during the creation of an estate plan?

Prior posts on this New Jersey estate planning blog have discussed the importance of having a personal estate plan. However, not everyone who could benefit from creating such a plan has done so.

The management of debts in a decedent's estate

It is not uncommon for a Moorestown resident to pass away with assets to his name. It is also not uncommon for such an individual to die with outstanding debts such as home mortgages, car loans and other personal financial obligations. When a person passes on and leaves both debts and assets in her estate, it is often up to the estate's administrator to figure out how to manage asset distribution and debt satisfaction.
