How do you know which will is real?

You have recently mourned the death of your last parent and now you are facing the task of making sure you execute your parents’ will according to their wishes. However, while going through their paperwork, you realize that your parents left two wills. Both appear at first glance to be valid, leaving you with some confusion as to which will is the one to go with. You worry that choosing one or the other could cause hard feelings within your family. This is an uncommon situation, but not one that is unknown for Michigan residents.

What if I lost my will or forgot where it is?

Wills are such important documents that it seems unlikely you could make one and then lose it or forget where it is. Yet it happens to many people. For example, they make a will, put it in a "secret" space in their home and move 10 years later, forgetting the will is there. Or they put it in furniture that is sold many years down the road.

End-of-life wishes as you care for your terminally ill parent

Taking care of an aging parent is a difficult task. That task is monumentally more difficult, however, when your parent has a terminal illness and thus has a prognosis that tells you how long you might expect him or her to live. People often avoid questions around end-of-life matters when they are healthy because it can be so uncomfortable to think about death and the related planning that accompanies it. When parents are facing the end of their lives, they may be counting on you to help them make important decisions.

Common problems associated with “cookie cutter” wills

When it comes to creating your will, you may feel tempted to take the “easy” route and find a template version online that you can fill out and be on your way. Nowadays, it is not difficult to find a do-it-yourself will, but given the importance and permanent nature of the document, is it really worth cutting corners?

3 questions about including your pet in your estate plan

Dogs, cats and other pets make your life more exciting and special. You likely consider them part of the family. Along with the emotional connection you have with your pet, the law considers him or her to be personal property, according to Forbes. Both of these are good reasons to include your pet in your estate plan. Your will or trust can secure a stable and loving future for your beloved pet. 

3 warning signs of undue influence

Is your parent getting older and finalizing an estate plan? You might feel concerned about the well-being of your loved one during this time. If you are suspicious whether something is happening with the estate planning process, you should be aware of a term known as “undue influence.”
