The Real Reason Why Artists Like Prince And Aretha Franklin Die Without A Will

Aretha Franklin Estate Plan & Princes Estate Plan

There is a considerable rundown of celebrities who passes without having a will, and a new report shows that 60% of all Americans as of now have no will. Some will say that the explanation is essential that artists would rather not contemplate their demise, that they feel a feeling of everlasting status, and that as far as needs making arrangements for death is only not at the highest point of their life.

A conventional estate plan manages what befalls a craftsman’s property when he or she passes. It neglects to catch the entirety of who the person was during their life or the effect their works had on the world. Specialists leave an enduring heritage, which requires an estate plan.

Not exclusively should heritage resources be examined independently with an artist for keeping the person engaged and ready to simply decide, yet seldom should inheritance resources at any point be overseen and controlled in a similar way as non-heritage resources. Inheritance resources require a discrete arrangement.

The lawful construction through which artists make, claim, and deals with their works is the structure through which the heritage is proactively and deliberately assembled. It will be that equivalent lawful design that makes due past ensuring and commending that heritage for a long time into the future. In the event that we center around the person’s life in addition to the agreement, however, the lawful construction through which the craftsman lives makes us be ready to accommodate what befalls anyone’s inheritance resources upon death.


  1. What is Medicaid fraud?

Medicaid fraud is simply false information to get Medicaid to pay for all the services needed for yourself or someone else.

2.  What is a pour-over will?

A pour-over Will is a Will written document stating the actions needed to be done through the trustee which will be transferred to him or her. The truster is someone who’s responsible for many assets to be taken care of or sent to assigned beneficiaries.

3. When someone dies does their debt go away?

No, when someone dies, if that person had any debt, creditors will still ask for the money back adding more credit to the accounts. After the designation of the person’s assets during court, payment of debts will also be announced to whoever the court would call responsible. So a family member, spouse, or close friend will continue with paying everything you owe which is why you should make an estate plan to prevent this sort of conflict.

4. Does a trust protect assets from a nursing home?

 Yes, as long as you transfer funds towards your rent, mortgage, or assistant living instead of going to a nursing home.

5. Does transfer on death avoid probate?

The transfer of death only makes the probate process much more difficult by having you provide additional details and the reason for the transfer. This makes the process longer and if it’s longer, it’ll be more expensive. The only way to avoid probate is through a trust because everything would be set up or planned ahead, especially the transfer of death.

6.   What does an elder care attorney do?

An elder care attorney has the expertise in arranging any necessary goals for whoever the elder being served needs. It can go along with not just estate planning but also medical care proxies, elder abuse, or dealing with ownership of spousal belongings. This is all regards to any senior over the age of 50.

7. If my spouse dies do I get his social security and mine?

Because of the laws of Estate Planning, there’s something labeled, the surviving spouse clause where if one spouse dies, the surviving spouse gets his or her assets. The only assets not provided would be government funds that the spouse still owes or would actually lose the entire thing because of labeled ownership unless there’s a Will stating rights to owning these finances.

8. How do I know if my unemployment claim was approved in NY?

After applying for unemployment at the official NY government website,, you should receive a letter towards your home address 2 weeks after applying stating how much unemployment you should receive. Though that’s if you get approved. If not, you would receive the same letter in the same amount of time saying you’re ineligible due to certain dynamics in your life that the government won’t give you many benefits.

9. Do you need a lawyer for advance directives?

These forms can be created by yourself as long as you are over the age of 18 but have the same disadvantages of handwriting your own Will. This means that advance directives shouldn’t be handwritten to prevent future fallacies due to not being able to read the file or putting information that has nothing to do with what’s needed. So you can make your own advance directives but it’s recommended to get a lawyer to guide you in the process.

10. Does a trust override a will?

No, a trust has different functions than a Will but a trust secures the Wills needs for whatever is listed.
