What You Need to Know About Living Trusts, Wills, Powers of Attorney,

This seminar offers the opportunity to learn the immense value and resulting peace of mind of setting up an estate plan. You’ll learn what constitutes a good plan, as well as the possible consequences of an inadequate one.
What is an estate plan?
An estate plan addresses what will happen to your assets and to your minor children if you become incapacitated and when you die. Without a plan, the administration and disposition of your property and the custody of your minor children will be determined by a combination of lawsuits (adults guardianship, intestate probate) and paperwork signed by you at various points in your life when you acquired assets.
