Having an estate plan is better than no plan. Estate planning in Minnesota is really easy when the choice is clear. Other times, people an families are confronted with difficult decisions.
As an estate planning attorney, my goal is to educate and inspire a conversation with people and families needing help with creating a plan, editing a plan and enforcing a plan.
Estate Plan Basics
Each person and family is different. Generally, a person’s plan starts with addressing beneficiaries, formalizing a will and addressing a power of attorney and health care agent.
For some, a few documents can accomplish this goal. Families who are concerned about reducing stress on family members find comfort in adding a revocable trust to their estate plan, communicating their goals and addressing more complicated issues on behalf of their children.
