It has been a while since we’ve seen a celebrity that’s done a proper estate plan. Instead of failing to plan, or simply having a standard will where all of his assets go through probate where the information is public, Burt Reynolds decide that the best way to provide for his son is through a trust.

By having a trust instead of will, Mr. Reynolds is able to maintain his privacy, dictate the terms of distribution to his son, and also offers his son some asset protection.

May the ghost be with you. Happy Halloween!

For those who are venturing out on Halloween for trick or treating festivities, there are laws to keep in mind for 2018. Some Halloween laws might scare you. From California to Maryland, local ordinances penalize trick-or-treating by teens, after 8 p.m., or even while wearing a mask.

In Walnut, trick-or-treaters can’t wear a mask or disguise.

In Hollywood, it’s against the law to “possess, use, sell or distribute Silly String” in public from 12:01 a.m. on October 31 to noon November 1. Violating the law can result in a $1,000 fine.

Thankfully, many communities don’t turn to special ordinances to enforce Halloween decorum. Officials instead issue safety tips, which can include recommended hours, costumes and more.

Be safe, everyone.

Did you know that most Americans pass away without every writing a will or trust? Most say that the biggest reason they don’t have one is that they just don't have a chance to get around to making one.

We can’t also overlook the idea that by creating one we are coming to terms with our own mortality. In fact, LegalZoom report that Blacks and Hispanics are the ones most likely to not have a will.

If you think that not having a will ready isn’t the end of the world, then think again. Consider the ramifications for a moment; children and spouses will fight, your heirs will fight for a very long time, and you can bet that you are not going to get the type of funeral that you envisioned in your mind.

These are just a few of the major outline issues your family core will face and we haven’t even covered the topic of inheritance. To learn more on this one of our specialist did a little research and found this next article which covers this in greater detail.

Still, think you don’t need a will? Make sure to speak to one of our specialist for more on how we can help you get your documents in order.
