What are the requirements of an executor of an estate?

When a loved one passes away in Delaware, his or her family faces the responsibility of settling his or her estate. This is a potentially complex process, particularly for those dealing with the grief and complications that often follow a death in the family. Executing the estate, which is the process of dealing with all money and assets, will be the responsibility of one person, either named in the will or appointed by the court.

Small business owners need to consider estate planning

Owning a small business is the manner in which many Delaware residents earn a living. Because of the importance of their businesses, most people want to take the time to protect their companies. One way of doing so includes estate planning. Creating a plan early can help address many aspects of how the business should be addressed in the event of incapacitation or death.

Organizing estate planning documents can save time later

Many Delaware residents understand the importance of planning and organization. Rather than having important information stored haphazardly, it is beneficial for parties to have vital documents organized. In particular, having estate planning documents in order could prove immensely useful to surviving loved ones when the time comes to utilize the documents.

Various professionals can help with residential real estate transactions

Many people rent their living accommodations until they reach a point where they feel financially secure. When they reach this point, they may feel excited at the prospect of buying their own homes. Of course, residential real estate transactions are complex financial and legal affairs. Therefore, it is often wise to have the right assistance.

Creating a long-term care plan can help address costs

Many people enjoy the process of planning. The comfort that can come from having a plan for various scenarios can seem appealing. As a result, some Delaware residents may have plans for a number of occasions. However, they may want to ensure that they have a long-term-care plan in place specifically.

Recent celebrity deaths raise estate planning questions for all

Estate administration challenges and even litigation often mark the aftermath of a high net-worth person's death. This is especially the case for those who leave no estate planning documents, which was purportedly the situation regarding recently departed celebrities such as Aretha Franklin and Prince. While these stories involving the estates of the rich and famous certainly make headlines, they should also incite some reflection in Delaware individuals in families who may be at risk of putting off estate planning until it is too late.
