This week on Life’s Third Act, TuckerAllen estate planning attorney, Nina Windsor, and co-host Jill Enders discuss the tragic death of Anne Heche and how her lack of an estate plan has made her untimely passing even more difficult for her loved ones.
Beloved actress Anne Heche, known best for her roles in “Donnie Brasco”, and “Six Days, Seven Nights”, passed away on August 11, 2022. Being that she died without a will, the administration of her estate was to be determined by California state laws, rather than by her own choice. Since Anne Heche had children from separate relationships this made the passing of her estate complicated. Ms. Windsor and Ms. Enders discuss the difficulties that come with not having a will, how the passing of Anne Heche’s estate may played out, and the importance of not just verbalizing your wishes, but putting them down on paper.
