Attorney-CPA Joe Cordell and co-host Jill Enders are joined by TuckerAllen estate planning attorney Nina Windsor to continue their conversation about common mistakes people make regarding estate planning.
Some of the mistakes they review include failing to communicate a complicated family situation with your estate planning attorney, adding children as joint owners instead of beneficiaries or through an estate planning document, drafting a will under the misconception that it will avoid probate, naming just one successor Trustee or Agent for Power of Attorney and Healthcare, picking a guardian based on the guardian’s financial position without practical considerations, avoiding your preferences on organ donation or designating burial or cremation because you don’t want to think about it, verbally communicating something to your family that is different from what is in your estate plan, using an online legal service rather than an estate planning attorney, and more.
If you have any questions about estate planning or elder law, get in touch with an attorney at TuckerAllen.
