Your Will’s Companion is a concise estate planning resource, to be used as a guide for Do-It-Yourself will preparation, as well as being a “Swiss Army knife toolkit” on a variety of topics. In it, we try to address a wide range of common questions and problems:
What does my will actually control?
Are there different types of wills?
What is Probate and how can I avoid it?
What is a Tax Sheltered Trust and how do I create one?
Can I set up a simple will myself?
Do the rules vary from state to state?
What is a Personal Representative and what does he actually do?
How do I arrange care for minors after I die?
What about long term care?
How do I delay my child’s inheritance?
How do I plan for retirement?
What is an IRA, and how to I control what happens to my investments?
All of these questions and more are addressed in Your Will’s Companion, which also provides a sample will you can use to compare to your own will.
