Blood and Money: Why Families Fight Over Inheritance and What To Do About It

Gain an understanding of how to effectively help families get through nasty inheritance battles.

Veteran estate planning, elder law attorney, and author P. Mark Accettura sets out to answer the question: what drives people to wage war against their own flesh and blood over a loved one's estate? Based on his internationally acclaimed and award-winning book, Blood & Money: Why Families Fight Over Inheritance And What To Do About It, Mark explains the psychology behind why people fight over estates and provides a comprehensive list of steps will makers, heirs, lawyers and advisors can take to prevent family-splitting inheritance disputes. Mark tracks the elements of the typical inheritance dispute: dysfunctional families, progressive dementia, and elder abuse. He explains the essential legal doctrines of testamentary capacity and undue influence and outlines appropriate legal protections and remedies to minimize the damage caused by bad actors. He also makes numerous specific recommendations to help parents, offspring, and their advisors prevent inheritance misconduct and preserve the most valuable legacy of all: the family itself.
