Bankruptcy, estate planning and inheritance

On Behalf of | Jul 15, 2019 | estate planning

There are a lot of issues to consider when it comes to bankruptcy as well as estate planning. Sometimes, these two areas of law can become intertwined. After all, they both affect a person’s finances and may also impact the entire family of someone who files for bankruptcy or sets up an estate plan. In this post, we will look into some of the different legal topics related to filing for bankruptcy as well as the potential impact his can have on inheritance. If you are preparing to file for bankruptcy, or if one of your loved ones who you have listed as a beneficiary will soon file for bankruptcy, you may want to think about some of the ways in which your estate plan could come into the picture.

If someone you love is preparing to file for bankruptcy, you may want to be aware of how their inheritance could be affected by this decision. Likewise, if you plan to approach the bankruptcy process, it is important to think about how this could affect your estate and some of the different issues that you may need to take into consideration in order to ensure that your loved ones are taken care of.

Our law firm knows that no two bankruptcy filings are the same, and everyone has different circumstances surrounding their estate. As a result, it is imperative to take a focused and individualized approach to the hurdles that you are facing. After all, your finances (and your loved ones’ financial future) may be impacted by the decisions that are made.
