There are decisions like where they are to live, the decisions around caregiving responsibilities, who gets wealth distribution, safety, wills, estates and health concerns. How will the property be divided and when will the family home be sold. How will the diamond ring be split in half if Suzy doesn’t care for diamonds? When things get ugly and families get stuck they needs someone who can help them through the process so they can get through things.
