The unexpected loss of a loved one is the worst nightmare of many families in Georgia. Even in situations where the loved one has planned ahead and created trusts -- for example, to help explain their wishes in regard to the division of their estate -- confusion over the person's wishes due to perceived contradictions in legal documents can create even more stress for family members. Unfortunately, reports indicate that the oldest sons of Alan Thicke are involved in an estate dispute with Thicke's wife.
Most people in Georgia work hard to support themselves in life. Many are successful enough that they have assets to leave behind for family members after their death. However, there are many special considerations when it comes to distributing assets. For example, some people want to ensure that family members retain the asset, rather than it being divided with a spouse in the event of a divorce. Fortunately, there are some ways to protect an estate in the event a beneficiary seeks to end his or her marriage, including the creation of trusts.
