Good News for David Cassidy’s Son

David cassidyAccording to court documents obtained, the late actor and musician David Cassidy left his son Beau the bulk of his estate.

That estate was originally valued at just $150,000, minus some substantial debts. However, Cassidy’s estate is now estimated at about $230,000, after debt expenses are paid.  However, there’s more. Cassidy had a retirement plan which has already paid out $450,000 to Beau. His son will also receive $1 million in life insurance policy proceeds since he was the sole beneficiary.

When it’s all added up, Beau Cassidy will inherit roughly $1.68 million—which is more than 10 times what the sum was initially reported to be his when his father, the former Partridge Family star, passed away at the age of 67 from organ failure in late 2017.

His daughter Katie Cassidy was omitted from his will. David claimed he was no more than a biological father to her. Cassidy told People several months before his death, “I’ve never had a relationship with her. I wasn’t her father. I was her biological father but I didn’t raise her.”

Nonetheless, Katie was one of the family members who joined to mourn his loss, after he succumbed to his struggles with liver and kidney failure. She credits him with giving her valuable advice about spending a life in the limelight.

“He left me with really great advice. He was like: ‘Don’t ever stop going to class. That’s where you should put your money,’” she told People. “And that’s what I do, and I’ve been able to go from nothing to where I am today and it’s built confidence and self-esteem.”

The actress also admitted to being quite impacted by her father’s final words, writing on Twitter, “My father’s last words were ‘So much wasted time.’ This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute.”

Request a free consultation

We hate spam too. We will never share or sell your information.

We've been putting together as many resources as possible so that we can continue to help:

  • If you’re a current client with a signing appointment or a prospective client with a consultation and would prefer that meeting take place in your own home, we can accomplish that with a little bit of pre-planning on our part and with the addition of a laptop, smartphone, tablet or other computer in your home to facilitate this virtual meeting. For those of you that need to sign legal documents, that too can be accomplished with the use of a webcam (FaceTime etc.), so that we can witness and electronically notarize all of your important legal documents.
  • We launched the rollout of our on-demand webinar early so that new clients and our allied professionals can view the important component parts of ‘an estate plan that works’ at their convenience.  That is available on our website.
  • Live video workshops will be produced as quickly as possible and certainly ahead of our previous schedule; we will keep you posted as these events become available. Given the ‘boutique’ nature of the firm, we rarely have more than ten people in our office including team members at any one time. During this period of ‘social distancing,’ we promise to have no more than 8 people at any time.   This allows us to comply with the Governor’s directive to limit in-person gatherings.
  • The best way to communicate with us is still by phone during regular office hours of 8:30 to 5:00, Monday through Friday, or, you can email any of our team members (that is, their first name followed by @zarembalaw.com).  We will respond to these emails as quickly as possible.
  • Please continue to follow the directives of our local, state, and federal agencies. For your health and in consideration of our team who is assisting you, if you’ve scheduled an office appointment or planned to drop off paperwork and are experiencing a fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care doctor for guidance and then our office to reschedule.

Thank you, Walt and the Zaremba Team

Coronavirus/Covid-19

The unprecedented coronavirus pandemic has taken our entire country by surprise. We understand how difficult this time is for America’s businesses and families.  However, we believe it is vitally important that we make every effort possible to continue to offer solutions that avoid disrupting our important partnership with you, your family and friends.  As you know, estate planning is not something that should wait for a more convenient time, therefore the opportunity to address your important goals both during and after this crisis should not wait.  To that end, we have added the option of a ‘virtual consultation’ to our office process.  You will now have a choice of either meeting with us in our office or in the comfort of your own home.
