Estate planning musts, especially for the LGBT community

estate planningPeople need to take steps to make their estate plan as bullet-proof as possible. This applies especially to members of the LGBT community, where relatives may not approve of the relationship and may want to get in the way of what you want.
A story in the Washington Blade says these things are key to making sure your estate plan is followed the way you want:

* Make sure your will is current.

* Include a โ€œno contestโ€ clause in your will. This is meant to discourage people from challenging your will.

* Keep copies of any old wills that you may have signed, especially all are similar. If the newest one is successfully challenged, the older one or ones may still stand.

* Document your competence. Videotape the signing of the will if possible.
