Sibling Estate Disputes

“My Kids Will Never Fight Over My Estate”. The book “Bobby Gets Bubkes: Navigating the Sibling Estate Fight” by Charles Ticker dives into the issue of sibling rivalry, and the importance of family discussions regarding estate planning. Unfortunately, sibling estate disputes are a common occurrence.

There are several reasons for this including greed, sentimental items, and whether there are grandchildren in the picture. To avoid sibling estate disputes, parents need to take off their rose coloured glasses and objectively look at their children and their ability to effectively distribute the estate.

Mark Goodfield (The Blunt Bean Counter) details some of the main points of this book and how to mitigate sibling rivalry issues.
