This course explores the basics of estate planning. What happens if you don’t have a trust? How do living trusts work and do you need one? Who controls your assets once held in Trust? Also covered: The importance of choosing the right Successor Trustee, exercising control over assets after death, tax savings with proper estate planning, what to do upon the death of the first spouse, and how Powers of Attorney and Medical Directives work. It’s hard for lawyers to be brief! (Pun intended.)
