What Should I Tell My Family?

Preparing a will or trust can prove a delicate experience for a person. While individuals survey the full extent of their property and consider how best to divide these sums, they may also take the time to think sincerely about the people they leave behind. In these situations, it can be difficult to find the right words to say.

Preparing for the Future

Although wills and trusts are often created before an emergency situation when someone’s health is rapidly declining, it may be best to talk about the testament with family and affected friends. When testators finish creating their will or trust, settling major legal concerns with an estate planner, they may want to talk over some of the following parts of the testament with family members:

  • Roughly describe how the property will be divided
  • Mention any long-term trusts set up in the estate plan
  • Discuss any legal complications that could arise

Even though testators may discuss their estate plan and subsequently make changes informally, these changes may not hold up unless they are properly documented. If this occurs, a testator needs to contact an estate planner to review their testament amendment options.
