Family members need to know what is going on with the estate administration to alleviate any individual’s fears that he or she might be getting the short end of the stick. Communication that takes place in person between family members is best, so families can see each other face-to-face and build a consensus about how to deal with any potentially large problems.

Family meetings are also great for remembering and celebrating the loved one who passed away. That helps families keep in mind what they have in common, instead of what their differences are.

An estate planning attorney can guide you in creating an estate plan that fits your unique circumstances.
