Let me say this has NOTHING to do with my Mom...or even my Immediate Family!!!


Whats Fair ...to you....as far as Who gets what when someone passes away?Should everything be Split up..and Devided Equally among Sibblings..or whoever?
Should Those that were Care Givers get more?

Just yesterday I was contacted by someone...that wants me to testify in Court....because their Sibblings wanted more than the "Will" read!!!
They want more than what their Parents wanted them to have! (I wont get into details)

Would you Want more than what was left for you? Would you Fight it..in court...if you did want more??
Personally....All I want are....... The Memories of the Love that we shared!!!
Money and all the other BS in the world cant Compete with that!!! So I see it!!!
What are your thoughts on this?
BTW have you made a "Will" yet? I have gotta get off my ass and Make one myself!!!

I encourage everyone who does not have a will to complete one no matter your age. You can create a will yourself, without a lawyer, but having a lawyer simplifies matters.

If you have any funds in a checking account, etc. assign a trusted family member or friend as beneficiary to the account NOW. This will help avoid certain probate issues down the line. In most states, even with a will, an estate will have to undergo the Probate process which takes three to six months for a simple will, depending upon where you live. A trust is even better because it helps to avoid tax burdens, etc. but it costs more to set-up and administer.

Unfortunately, when it comes to the recently deceased and the remaining family, money and material items becomes the central focus. What you leave behind to be shared is your business... to choose whom and how much they may receive. Inevitably someone will not like their 'share' and may contest a will, but they have to pay for the privilege.

My personal experience has taught me to be prepared. I have a will with an executor assigned with a secondary in place if something happens to him. These individuals have agreed to accept this responsibility. When I'm able I will form a trust to help avoid any other legal issues.

The most humane thing to do is to have your funeral planned and paid for prior to your death. Having a will helps to have your wishes respected and not another person's selfish desires.

A greenie sliding your way... I apologize for taking up so much space, but this is an important subject we all should address sooner than later.

As I am an only child, I am the only heir in my mother's will. As for my kids, I just put down that anything of value is to be sold and the money divided three ways.and they are not to put me in the Baptist cemetery. My mother bought me a plot there without asking some years ago. My kid's reaction was what was she thinking? If my kids want to get into a squabble over things, that is on them because I won't be here to see it. Everything is in my will. When you make a will you need to have your last wishes concerning yourself in there as well. Never ever think oh they will know what you want.

After experiencing first hand just how ugly greed can make a family member when Mick's mother passed away and his brother showed just how cold and ugly he can be, my sisters and I came to an agreement that our parents final wishes will be followed to the letter.

Granted, Mick and his brother were not close, in fact, they could barely stand each other. My sisters and I are close, always have been. We also know our parents aren't a "fountain of wealth" also. And quite honestly, the 3 of us would rather our parents be around forever, but, we know better. So, no, I would not fight my parents last wishes, and neither would my sisters.

RJ I know it sounds a bit underhanded, but once mom's gone you can sell that plot.

No.. I don't even want what's in the wills.. I wanna keep my relatives. I know that's not realistic.. but it's what I want!
