Buzz Aldrin has sued his own family in response to disagreements about the management of his financial affairs.

This is one of those stories that is hard to interpret or analyze. The facts as presented by either side could justify their actions, and thus it is hard to say what really caused the rift. It will require a full court case to settle it.

Regardless, this does seem to be the kind of craziness that often follows Buzz Aldrin wherever he goes.

    Craziness? You’re being very judgmental and the term is also disrespectful of our mentally challenged persons. Totally unacceptable – I have reported you to the PC police. I anticipate they’ll show up at your door with signs, drums and whistles until you make an abject apology and donate large sums of money to the ACLU and SPLC. I hope you will learn your lesson.

    on a related note; Stan Lee, (from Marvel Comics fame) is embroiled in family business-squabbles and back-n-forth allegations regarding his state of mind Vs. selected family members skimming & embezzling funds from him.

    Folks, before it all, a hardcore family planning lawyer is what you need. Get one. Or the kids will chew themselves to pieces like starving honey badgers at your funeral. Not a pretty sight.

    Meanwhile, commanding the high ground, beachhead cliffs, mountain pass, MOON, is a good strategy to have.
    High ground is a good place for picking off strategic targets, L.E.O. comm and observation satellites. ISS and space junk as well.
    Purchase MOON real estate now. Uh, not so much dark side for now.

    Well, they aren’t kids anymore. But those were harsh personal accusations. Is he upset because of the LOP-G :-D

    My grandfather was a probate judge, and his recommendation was to split everything evenly in order to avoid horrific rifts in the family.

    I agree with Alex about starting with a good, qualified lawyer, but also make sure that any disparities are deserved and well explained, preferably in advance.

    It looks to me like Buzz Aldrin may be a victim of elder abuse, but it is unclear whether by his children and foundation manager or by some people new in his life. I hope that this does not turn into a sad story.

    It looks like the kids might feel threatened by a new wife. Estate planning can help deal with that.

    One of the problems with splitting everything equally is that everything must be sold to get equal splits. This means things like businesses, land, cabins, and similar properties that often have generational connection to the family have to be sold or split up.
