with Susan Farnsworth
Review the basics of making a simple will. A will can protect your assets and help minimize the chances of a contest over your estate. If you die without one, your estate may not be distributed as you would choose. Use a will to: provide for your family, specify to whom you would like to receive your property, state your funeral and burial instructions, create a trust for minor children, disinherit a person(s), or name a guardian for minor children. Join local attorney Susan Farnsworth for this one-evening class as she explains the process of creating a will and discusses how to determine whether a simple will is sufficient or if a more complex document is in order to protect your assets.
