Just a Simple Will?
I can appreciate the desire to have simple documents and a "simple will." Yet, we live in a complicated world, where we have bank accounts, investment accounts, IRAs, doctors, hospitals and then-- if we do not have the right estate planning documentation, we have courts. Therefore, a simple Will does not always meet our objectives. We still need powers of attorney for finances and for health, and to utilize a trust or pay on death designations. Perhaps, most importantly, there is the need for advice-- how to use estate planning documents and avoid court if you get sick or incapacitated. I give my clients advice, not just paper. The articles on my website gives some ideas of the issues I cover.
