Posted by Nina Whitehurst | Dec 02, 2017 | 0 Comments

If you make a mistake in estate planning, it is unlikely that you will be the first to make that error.

If you want to know some of the errors that have been make in the estate planning world, take a look at a recent video presented by The Motley Fool in "Haunt Your Heirs From Beyond the Grave -- With These Horrifying Estate Planning Errors and Oddities."

The stories include such things as a will being written on the bumper of a tractor which had to be removed and submitted to the court, so the will could be administered. That is probably not even the most unusual place wills have been written.

Another story includes a request to freeze the head of the deceased.

Most estate planning mistakes are not quite that strange. They are mundane.

The biggest mistake is just not planning at all.

If you would like to avoid repeating the mistakes people have made in the past, then you can easily do so by contacting an estate planning attorney for advice on creating an estate plan that meets your unique circumstances.
