Discussing estate plan revision with loved ones

People decide to revise their estate plan for an array of reasons, whether their financial circumstances have changed due to a personal injury settlement, a new job or the loss of their job, among many other issues. Moreover, divorce, the birth of a child or grandchild and changes with respect to the health and well-being of family members can also necessitate estate plan revision. However, some people may be unsure of which revisions are necessary and how these changes could affect those they love, which is why communication with family members can be very beneficial.

For example, you may have designated a child to be in charge of your estate after you pass away, but they may no longer want these responsibilities. When this occurs, it may be necessary to talk with other family members about your situation and identify someone else to manage your estate. Moreover, family members may disagree with changes that are made to an estate plan, from naming an executor to the manner in which assets are divided among beneficiaries. Sometimes, these disagreements can lead to heated disputes and talking about your estate plan with family members could help reduce tension.

Communication is not possible or preferable in all circumstances. Sometimes, it is better to make necessary changes to your estate plan without going over the details with others. Every person is in a unique position when it comes to creating and revising an estate plan, and you should do what is best for yourself, your estate and your loved ones.
