A Checklist for Organizing Your Wills and Other Key Documents

One reason Patricia L. Brown & Associates handles probate, wills, trusts and powers of attorney is so many of our family law and divorce clients do not have these documents. Perhaps the term "estate planning" misleads people who confuse "estates" with mansions. If you own virtually anything of value (automobile, furniture, family photographs and momentos, a bank account, a TV, etc) or have minor children, you need a will and powers of attorney.  Otherwise, some anonymous judge will decide who receives the items you value, including perhaps  your despised brother-in-law.  And if you are injured or ill and cannot make your own health care decisions, who do you want making those decisions?  That brother-in-law?
