Global pop superstar Michael Jackson commanded legendary status for myriad reasons, including his ability to do the iconic and unforgettable “moonwalk” dance move.
Real estate is an unusual asset for a variety of reasons. Properties can take up a significant portion of a decedent’s wealth while also being complex to liquidate or divide. A family home or vacation spot often carries an emotional component for heirs as well.
It’s unlikely that the Black Panther or Spider Man would need any help with this. And a character like the Hulk would certainly confront the challenge in resolute head-on fashion, spending scant little time pounding all obstacles into submission.
Estate administration is a legal realm marked by a prominent irony, namely this: high numbers of people insisting that they cannot be benefited by a tailored estate plan who actually have a dire need to think about and execute relevant planning documents.
Lots of things contribute to would-be estate planners becoming actual doers, of course. Procrastination is often ultimately defeated by a replaced sense of urgency that increases as time goes by. Children grow up, with parents naturally thinking of ways to help them in future years. Select loved ones might have special needs, which mandates recognition of that fact and the employment of a legal plan to address it. Family legacy concerns might loom large.
