To best enjoy this post, please be sure to first read A Family History of the Austens.
Welcome to the Austen family! Their father, Jack Austen, is a hardworking, self-made, immigrant who started a family real estate company. Some children were involved in the family company, some were not. Some children were promised inheritances, some were not. Not uncommon, the estate planning had some deficiencies. What potential problems do you spot here? We are excited to discuss for the first time estate planning and administration involving family businesses. Stay tuned to Beyond the Will throughout the coming months as we explore their story and offer our insights.
Let us know what issues you spot and what questions you have. We have a set of topics to explore within this story, but would be more than happy to focus on anything of particular interest to you, our audience!
