The American Bar Association Guide to Wills and Estates
The complete and easy guide to all the law every adult should know about distributing property at death and planning for possible incapacity. Even though the percentage of Americans with wills has been rising, most Americans still neglect to prepare a will or trust, subjecting their heirs to confusion, costing their estates money, and resulting in distribution of their assets according to state law, rather than their own preference. Most also don't prepare a living will or other health-care directive, risking profound emotional and financial stress on their loved ones.
Besides wills and health care directives, topics of this comprehensive book include how to plan an estate, joint ownership and other ways to transfer property without a will, trusts and living trusts, death taxes, choosing an executor or trustee, changing your will or trust, and planning now to make things easier for your family.
