Estate planning disputes are not restricted to the beneficiaries

When you think about disputes over estate planning, it is understandable to consider the type of arguments that can occur after you are gone, if your loved ones find reasons to dispute the terms of your will. However, as we at the Law Offices of Frye & Vazquez, P.L., are aware, just the act of planning your will can be complex, and it might become contentious if you and your spouse disagree over who gets what. You and other Florida residents might want to explore ways to avoid an argument over your will planning.

Consider, for example, if you and your spouse can't agree about how to divide your assets. You might want to sell your home and vehicles and divide the profits among your children, while your spouse thinks each of your children should receive one of these items to keep or sell as they wish. You may want to give one of your children, who is suffering financially, a slightly larger inheritance than the others, but your spouse wants everyone to get an equal amount. Your spouse might not speak to one of your children and have plans to cut him out of your will, while you vehemently disagree.

A dispute over will planning can create family arguments as easily as a dispute over the will after your death. You might seek assistance from a professional, such as a mediator, to help you resolve your disagreements and preserve family harmony. As FindLaw explains, mediation can be beneficial for many types of disputes.

Your will planning might take some time to complete, but you are likely to feel a weight off your shoulders when it's done, as our page on estate planning points out.
