A Will in Minnesota can be scary to think about if you do not have such a document.
For others, the only time we think about a Will is when a family member dies and we are depending on the probate system.
As an estate planning attorney, my goal is to educate and inspire a conversation with people and families needing help with a Will.

Putting the legal terms aside, I believe primary purpose behind a document that discusses what should happen when we die is identifying an executor for our property and a guardian for our children. Of course, the division of our property is significant too.
The postings and articles below address these concepts, along with forming a final document, editing or amending it, and of course, probate matters.
