Family dispute slows estate administration and probate process

When a beloved family member passes away, surviving loved ones in Georgia are often left wondering how to cope with their loss. Many families are able to come together to mourn, but a dispute over estate planning documents may mean that some find themselves facing each other in court rather than coming together to mourn. Unfortunately, the estate administration and probate process following the death of U.S. Senator Fred Thompson has been delayed as his wife and two sons from a previous marriage argue over the contents of his will.

Should wills and other decisions be discussed with family?

The estate planning process can be a complicated process for many people in Georgia. They are often left making difficult decisions regarding how their assets will be divided upon their deaths and naming people to make medical and financial decisions on their behalves in the event they become unable to make them on their own. Often, once wills are completed, difficult decisions regarding whether to discuss estate planning documents with family members must also be addressed.
