In some ways, hearing about what not to do is even more important than hearing about what you should do. This is especially true with estate planning, where often people have already gone ahead and done some things on their own without realizing the possible negative consequences. Frequently when I do seminars and presentations, people from the audience come up to me afterwards and confide that they've already taken the very step I just finished telling them not to take.
So on that note, I'm attaching a link to a recent article from www.advisor.ca called What Not to do in Estate Planning. Click here to read it as it contains some really on-point information.
