Holy Black Sheep Batman

There are sheep all over the Globe and Mail today. Thanks to Roma Luciw for referencing me in her column today, Baa baa black sheep, are you in the will? Roma’s insightful column discusses estate planning for the Black Sheep child. This is often a very sensitive issue within families and requires one to navigate the family dynamic, estate and tax planning.

Roma the web editor of the Globe Investor personal finance site, also writes a weekly column on personal finance issues in the Globe and Mail. In addition, she is also one of the contributors to Home Cents which provides expert tips on how to make money and save money.

I will have a blogs on Estate Planning for the Black Sheep Child and How your Family Dynamic can affect your Estate Planning next week.
