What is an Estate Plan?

In Wisconsin, an estate plan consists of a will, health care power of attorney, living will, durable power of attorney for finances, and may or may not consist of a trust and final disposition. There are many different types of trusts depending upon the goals you are trying to accomplish, and not everyone needs a trust. The next few weeks of postings will provide more detail about the purpose of each of these documents.

None of the postings provide by this blog is a substitute for legal advice from an attorney who knows your circumstances. It is this blogger's opinion that estate plans, at least in Wisconsin, should be drafted by attorneys, not websites or drafted by individuals without a license to practice law.
