The Fight Over Singer Prince’s Estate Rages On

June 28, 2017

The Prince Estate Dispute: The battle over deceased singer Prince’s estate provides a textbook example of the importance of having an estate plan. Having died without a will or trust, Prince’s estate will pass to his heirs – his sister and five half-siblings–who were recently identified after the court sifted through and excluded a number of claimants. While Prince’s estate is undoubtedly larger than most, disputes can arise in estates of any size. Why leave your beneficiaries to be determined by the statutes?
