Estate Planning 2019

Estate Planning 2019

People will often think that they have an Estate Plan, if they have a Will. They don’t. They just have a Will. That’s just one document.

There are some other documents which they likely require as well, including:

  • A Power of Attorney for Assets
  • A Power of Attorney for Personal Care
  • A Will for Probate
  • A Will for Assets not requiring Probate
  • A Will for Extra-Jurisdictional Assets
  • Guardianship Appointment
  • Transfer of Real Property
  • Trust Agreement
  • Escrow Agreement
  • Custody Agreement

I do appreciate that was 10, but the average person will require at least six.

HINT: obtain legal advice!

Note: every lawyer who does estate litigation wants you to write up your own documents after you have found them on the internet.

Don’t do it. It’s complicated. A mistake will costs thousands and may cause aggravation among the people you wish to benefit from your estate. Have an overall plan. A Will kit only provides you with one of the many documents you require.
