Estate planning is an important process for sharing a legacy and helping your family understand your wishes. This course addresses common questions that arise: “Why isn’t signing a will enough?” “Will my family have to pay a death tax?” “How can I control my end-of-life decisions?” “What does it mean that ‘treating my children equally’ doesn’t always mean treating them fairly?” and many more. The instructor will also address your questions.
