Ex-wife and ex-girlfriend battle over Garry Coleman's estate

Planning for the unexpected is not always easy, but it is necessary. Many people don't think about planning for their future and the future of their families. They simply think that nothing will happen to them until they are older so they don't worry about making a will. This could be a mistake that will carry on for years after you death should you die unexpectedly.

Childhood actor Gary Coleman's estate is now being fought over in court. There is a dispute between the actor's ex-wife and ex-girlfriend over who has the rights to his estate. While his assets weren't as big as some Hollywood stars, the potential for financial compensation off of future royalties could be significant.

Because he went through many changes throughout his life, including getting married and then divorced, there might have been some unknown issues with his estate. When someone gets a divorce it is important to update their estate planning documents to make sure there are no unknowns left for family members to deal with should you die unexpectedly.

Making a will is easy to put off, but the case of Gary Coleman is a reminder to all of us that unexpected things do happen, and it is important that your final wishes are honored after your passing. There are various legal measures that can be put in place to make sure your money and other assets are distributed the way you want after you die. Speaking with an estate planning attorney can help eliminate the complexity of planning your affairs.
