Lessons from family dispute over Robin Williams' estate plan

Delaware residents who are starting to plan on how their assets will be distributed when they die may be able to learn some lessons from the family conflicts over the estate plan of the late comedian and actor Robin Williams. Even though Williams had an estate plan that appeared to specifically provide for both his current wife and his children from a former marriage, his survivors are now arguing over certain items in the home that his wife inherited under the provisions of a trust that he had in place.

Battle over Robin Williams' estate a teachable moment

Delaware residents may have heard that Robin Williams' family is engaged in a legal war over his estate. Though the comedian had a current estate plan and will, his third wife and three children are battling over personal items, such as his clothing, fossil collection, graphic novels and bicycles.

How to write a will that withstands court challenges

Estate planning is an important consideration for individuals in Delaware at many different stages of life. Making a will is one aspect of estate planning that should be done carefully to ensure that the document is upheld in court. Sometimes, the individual making a will wishes to disinherit a family member. However, this may be a reason to challenge a will. The challenge will be less successful if the family member is named in the will. If the will states that no provisions have been made for that family member, it indicates that the omission was deliberate.
