Show Notes

The only things certain in life are death and taxes. End-of-life decisions are inevitable. Sooner or later, we all will be faced with this troublesome task. In this episode, a recording or a virtual seminar originally presented on July 8, 2021, Attorney Brittany Smith helps you discover how a comprehensive team approach to estate planning can make a difficult time much more manageable for your family, and allow you to have you say even after you pass away. Among the items discussed are how to ensure your wishes are followed, what happens to your "stuff" if you don't have a will (you should!), is there really a reading of the will at the attorney's office, why it's not uncommon for an estate to take two years to settle, and why you may need to probate, and why this is NOT a terrible thing.
