What Types of Issues Can Be Addressed by an Overall Estate Plan?

It is often said that an estate plan addresses "dead people and their things." But an estate plan can and should include much more. An estate plan can address care for the decedent's living minor children, and the decedent’s living spouse. The totality of issues you may want to address in your estate planning documents should be discussed with your estate planning attorney during your initial meeting, so that all of your wishes can be known and properly addressed.
