For most people drawing up a will, making sure their inheritance is secure for their spouse, children, grandchildren, or other family members is a top priority. And though they may think they’re taking care of their loved ones’ future with the traditional planning a will offers, the reality is that down the line their designated heirs may never see a dime.
As attorney and estate-planning expert Armond Budish explains in Why Wills Won’t Work, good estate planning in the twenty-first century requires more than the old “one size fits all” approach of filling out a few legal documents.
