Wills & Trusts For the Rest of Us
Estate Planning for California Residents with a Net Worth Up to 10 Million Dollars
by Marina Modlin
Written specifically for non-lawyers, this book explains key estate planning concepts for residents of California with estates worth up to ten million dollars.
You will learn who needs to think about estate planning, and why, whether you need an attorney to help you, where to find one, and how to decide which attorney to hire.
The book also contains an overview of the four "core" estate planning documents: will, revocable living trust, power of attorney, and health care directive, and explains how the "core documents" work and what happens if you don't have them.
Finally, the book contains an outline of estate plans for homeowners, parents of young children, pet parents, and others, based on the facts of their lives. A brief overview of what needs to be done once someone passes away is also provided.
