Heath Ledger's Will Fails His Family

This morning I saw that the newest Batman movie, "The Dark Knight" had earned about 1/8th of the total summer box office. I began wondering how much money Heath Ledger, starring as the Joker, earned from this blockbuster.

I didn't find a current estimate of his take, but whatever it was, it's the center of a heated debate. Heath Ledger joins the list of wealthy celebrities that died without a proper estate plan. As you can see in this article from several months ago, Mr. Ledger's will was outdated (I'm shocked he even had one) and did not leave a penny to his child!

Remember - estate planning isn't a one time event. To ensure you and your loved ones are protected, it takes regular review to make sure your wishes are fulfilled.
