Bobby: Isn't it interesting how most estate plans don't work, but when you care enough about the client to learn who he/she is, they do. Good blog article. Look for your blog on mine with a link to you.

Very touching. Very true. When I hear my grandmother tell old stories, I watch her smile as she relives those times.

Bobby, this is a truly marvelous post. Thank you. I've been using these ideas for naming clients' trusts and their business entities for a time now, all, of course, because of John A. Warnick. I've added the idea of using text boxes within the documents to further explain the reason for the name. Thanks again.

Robert,
I just stumbled upon your blog and found this entry. In your entry, you didn't mention Medicaid or Elder Law. For you and your clients who have an elderly parent with Alzheimers or needing long-term care, you need to contact an Elder Law Attorney. As a Certified Elder Law Attorney, I work with families every day to protect assets in connection with long-term care Medicaid. I could protect some or all of what is left of your father's assets and get most of his care paid for by Medicaid. I'm in Fairfax City, and would be delighted to get together with you to discuss this.

This is an important point! Way too many people, including their attorneys, never think about this. I have seen it happen many times over my years. Thanks, Bobby. I hope everyone reads the post.

In early May, please include a map to the parking location. That was a bit confusing last time and we were parked, with other attendees, in the wrong lot. It worked out OK, but there was some confusion.

It is quite obsurd that the contingent beneficiary wouldn’t receive the proceeds if the life insurance proceeds aren’t paid out before the primary beneficiary dies. The law should be more concerned about who the insured wanted their life insurance to go to and less “who died first.” The day I see a contingent benficiary as “estate of my primary benficiary” is the day I start questioning the intelligence of the human race… If the primary beneficiary isn’t there to collect the proceeds of the life insurance policy when it’s paid out the contingent beneficiary should always get the proceeds.

    William, many people I know voice similar concerns on the issues you raise in your comment. In the area of estate planning, I have found that the eyes of the law are cold and the laws are strictly construed. A similar mistake I find in many estate plans is that many people don’t realize that the legal title to your assets will trump your legal documents. For example, if you have updated your Will or Trust but have not updated your beneficiary on a life insurance policy the financial institution will not honor your wishes in your Will or Trust. The insurance policy is a contract like many other financial instruments (IRAs, annuities, TOD accounts, etc) and they will only look to your beneficiary designation even though it may not reflect your current wishes. I have seen assets go to unintended beneficiaries just because the assets have not been properly titled. Tough lesson to learn!

It would help to have a tab at the top of the page labeled “Register”. When I did not find a tab, I searched the site for register and found the page. Rather awkward.
Afterward I clicked on “Resources” and found the page. Not intuitive.
Also, on the left it had 2013 events and on the right it had events up through the end of March. But it did have “View All Upcoming Events”. That worked well. Perhaps put that as a Tab up top, or the first and only thing after clicking on Register. Out of date material should be deleted.

Hi, can you execute a Transfer on Death deed on a deed where the ownership Joint Tenancy with right of survivorship if everyone on the current deed agrees on the beneficiary and is willing to sign?

What a beautiful, heart warming story! I live her name and your thoughtful reasons for it. She is a fortunate baby to have such a loving family to guide her through a long, fulfilling life.
We are at the other end. My father’s smile also filled a room and he loved having family fun. He also believed in doing things the right way. As we’ve been handling details following his May 12 death, having his estate in order has made a difficult time easier. I don’t have to worry about taking care if Mom’s lifestyle, because he had provided so well for her. It is definitely labor of love to prepare for the future.

PS-next time if Nava is sleeping when I see her, I will just have to wake her up…sorry, Newsha!

Using trusts in estate planning is vital to make sure that your wishes are followed. Bobby’s system of creating a plan, making sure that its continually updated, and caring for clients throughout will help ensure that the plan actually works.

Excellent post. Spouses need to know what their rights are, no matter the situation. Insight Law certainly can provide all the information to know what a person’s rights are.

Bobby,

This is my father and he already has an estate plan but definitely needs it updated and said he would like to talk to you. Not sure if he would answer his home phone so email first and ask him a convenient time to call or give him your number to have him call you!

Thanks,
Rebecca Croft

To whom it may concern, Can the federal estate tax be paid in installments? My brother and I may in time have to pay an estate tax of over 10 million dollars. My other question is if the majority of an estate value is a business, does that change how the estate tax is applied? Thank you for your time. Mike

Hi Newsha,

I was having trouble registering for the client meeting. I intended to reserve 2 spaces for 2/15 at 7-9 pm. Apoogies for the confusion. I was unable to login as my email was not recognized as a registered user.
