Estate Planning Solutions
A thoughtful estate plan provides peace of mind that you have determined settlement of your estate to ease the burden of your death on your loved ones. The importance of including a Health Care Directive and Power of Attorney in your estate plan will be reviewed.
This class will help you understand when a Will is sufficient, and why you might opt for a Trust. You’ll learn about ways to avoid probate, which is the court process for settling your estate that will cost your heirs time and money if you don’t take steps to avoid probate. Discussion of common mistakes will help you avoid the unwanted consequences that others have faced.
