Episode 195 – Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow: Estate Planning and Family Inheritance with Marivel Zialcita

Have you spoken to your parent(s) about estate planning?  What will happen to their financial assets when they will pass away?  Have you witnessed your family feud over family inheritance or ancestral land?  Have you thought of what legacies you’d like to pass on when you eventually transition to the other side?

In this TFAL episode, we collaborate with Pilipinx in Wellness to interview Marivel Zialcita, an estate planning attorney.  Listen as we discuss the hesitancy of many Filipinos and Filipino Americans to talk about inheritance, what a trust is and why it’s so important in passing on generational wealth, and the ever important topic that causes enormous amounts of family drama – land in the Philippines.  Attorney Zialcita is an expert in dealing with Filipino American estate planning and family inheritance and we are lucky to have this conversation with her.
