Dealing with out-of-state property upon your husband's death

As years go by in a marriage, it is not unusual to find married couples holding title to recreational property in another state. Perhaps it was a cabin in Vermont the family enjoyed while the kids were young. Or it might have been a condo for wintering in Tampa. But as the years went by, holding onto the property no longer seemed so important. When one spouse died, the property automatically transferred to the surviving spouse, but selling it always seemed like such a bother. Or in the case of a time share, selling it proved impossible. But holding onto it when there is no one in the family who wants it can result in a headache in probate court someday.

The administrator of the trust currently holding the Prince estate has proposed a process to identify possible heirs to the pop star's fortune.

Does your estate plan prevent future family disputes?

Your estate plan should be individually tailored to your wishes, your situation and your family. One thing you might want to consider about your estate plan is whether it is likely to prevent future family disputes or cause them. This is an especially appropriate consideration in light of International Day of Families, which is coming up on May 15.

Heirs seek additional royalties from Disney

Disney is currently facing a lawsuit from heirs to the man who wrote some of the songs related to the animated version of Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book." The animated movie was released by Disney in 1967. According to the lawsuit, the man in question wrote several songs for the movie. However, only one song -- "The Bare Necessities" -- ended up in the movie.

  • I wanted to write to say how pleased my wife and I were at your professional handling of our estate planning and preparation of new wills. We were put at ease by your visit to our home for an interview and were pleased that you listened to us and captured the things that we felt were important.

    --Robert and Christine Simonson, Fairport
  • In order to finalize the documents we came to your office and were greeted in a very professional manner and we could not have asked for finer service. We left with copies of everything we needed and feel very confident our needs have been met. Thanks again. We will surely recommend you should the opportunity arise.

  • I have been working with Weinstein & Randisi for about two years now. Elizabeth Randisi, through a very thorough process, has helped my wife and me determine what is really important in our lives. Thus, we were able to draft a living will that reflected our most important values regarding our estate.

    --David and Ajia Cherry, Fairport
  • I would like to give a testimony for Elizabeth Randisi, an estate attorney with Weinstein & Randisi. Her knowledge of wills and estate planning was clearly demonstrated in her presentation to us. Realizing our need for a will, my husband and I went to see Elizabeth.

  • Filing for Medicaid is never an easy or fun process. However, working with the Weinstein & Randisi firm made the process simple and streamlined.
