So you made the decision to get your will or trust done, but how do you prepare for the first meeting with an estate planning attorney? It might be easier than you think. You should really just have three things.
Will the State take my property? Will my loved ones pay more taxes? These are common questions that come up when discussing what happens if you die without a will, but aren’t necessarily true. Each state has intestate succession statues that try to guess who you would want to get your stuff if you don’t have a will.
