The planning for the transfer of assets owned by a person in case of unexpected death is known as estate planning. An estate constitutes the overall property that a person owns in his life. The estate planning process takes care of the process of transfer of the assets to the heirs or beneficiaries in such a way that everybody gets what he/she deserves while avoiding all potential conflicts.
Although the courts are always there to deal with estate matters in case if a person has not planned anything about his estate, such decisions will not have the touch of concern and responsibility that is specific to parents/guardians.
