Accounting for family dynamics while estate planning

Raising children and dealing with family drama can be hard for anyone in California. However, it can be even more complicated in families that have a significant amount of wealth. Parents or grandparents typically have to contend with the fact that each heir has different needs or desires. Therefore, it isn't uncommon for siblings to get into squabbles or for family members to snipe at each other on occasion over the terms of an estate plan.

Making arrangements for digital assets

California is one of the states that has adopted the Revised Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act. Under this law, if a website has a digital tool that allows a person to specify what happens to the account in case of the person's death, this is the course the courts will follow. However, if there are no tools and nothing in a will or a trust regarding digital assets, the state may distribute them like any other assets.
