This popular how-to guide contains the information you need to draft a simple will, allocate assets to beneficiaries, and prepare for possible disability. This planner guides you through the estate planning process step by step. You will learn how to gather all the necessary information, how to use that information to prepare your legal documents, and proper methods for storing each document.
The book includes these forms, along with instructions on how to complete each one: statutory power of attorney, medical power of attorney, living will, declaration of disposition of last remains, last will and testament, and a letter distributing personal property. The author has included examples of completed forms, so you can see what each form should look like upon completion. And blank, fillable forms are provided on the accompanying CD.
The book also includes other helpful tools, including answers to FAQs, an asset checklist, a glossary of estate planning terms, a memorandum of disposition of tangible personal property and some record-keeping documents.
All this useful material comes in a handy three-ring binder, with colorful tabs organized by topic, so you can quickly find the information you need as you plan your estate!
