When someone close dies, there is a lot of paperwork that is left behind to be dealt with. It can be a very awkward time because when you are in the midst of a death in the family, planning a funeral and having to sign pieces of paper about money and what has been left to whom etc is distressing. Things get very upsetting and it has to be dealt with in a very sensitive way. Unfortunately, there are always people that will see this as the perfect opportunity to try and cash into getting rich fast by inheriting money that your loved one had left behind.
This can be very testing and sometimes siblings can fall out about who gets the house, who gets the cars, jewellery etc. In fact, it is a very sad state of affairs to see grown men and women fighting over the belongings of a dead loved one. It is sad though, something that is happening more and more frequently.
