A Roadmap to Estate Planning
with Katherine Charapich
Legal issues often seem so complicated or confusing that we neglect dealing with them. Questions arise surrounding the key estate planning documents known as wills, trusts, powers of attorney, or advanced medical directives. The questions range from the basic to the more complex: What is a revocable trust? What if I don’t have a will in place when I die? Can I keep assets in my bloodline? Do I have to leave assets to my children? Do I need a power of attorney if I have made my adult-child joint owner with rights of survivorship on my bank account? Attorney Katherine Charapich’s classes will address these questions and more, and will aid in understanding estate planning documents that can help provide protection for persons as well as their financial investments. Ms. Charapich will discuss protecting individuals’ interests and well-being should they become incapacitated and protecting assets for their care. She will also address ways to ease the transfer of remaining assets to beneficiaries.
