Carrie Fisher's daughter to inherit a majority of her estate

Billie Lourd is ready to just be herself. The 24-year-old actress has had to live in the shadows of two very impressive and iconic actresses who happen to be her mother and grandmother. But sadly, she no longer has them in her life.

Lourd’s mother, Carrie Fisher, passed away just after Christmas last year. In what many termed to be death from a broken heart, Fisher’s mother, Debbie Reynolds passed away the next day.

An article explaining how Lourd made it through such a traumatic ordeal, is released to media outlets this week, it also should be noted that she stands to inherit a large portion of her mother’s estate. This includes Fisher’s Tesla Model S, the proceeds of her insurance policy, a controlling interest in her mother’s company along with the contents of her bank accounts

Perhaps most important, Lourd will have control over her mother’s public image. By some measures it seems ironically morbid that a person would generate a substantial amount of interest after they pass away, but this has occurred with a number of celebrities, including Michael Jackson, Prince and Whitney Houston. All of these allocations are ostensibly prescribed in Fisher’s will.

Those who want their wishes carries out should seek counsel from an experienced estate planning attorney. A skilled attorney can help in avoiding the pitfalls that ensnare families when a person passes away without any instructions on how assets should be divided or who should care for children and other vulnerable loved ones. Further, a lawyer can work to ensure that the probate process is followed with minimal interference.
