August 27, 2004, Newsletter Issue #82: Dying Intestate [without a will]

Tip of the Week

There`s no excuse for failing to plan for your family. According to a landmark Consumer Reports survey, 70% of the people in this country don`t have wills. That unfortunate statistic includes an awful lot of parents-- and causes so much heartache and wasted money - going to lawyers and court cases to settle the estate. In a way the parent or spouse never would have wished.....

There are several documents that parents--and anyone else who wants to control the disposition of their assets--must have. They`re not costly. Having a lawyer prepare them runs around $500. Or you can do it yourself with software like Nolo`s Willmaker (I see it is on sale and downloadable for $39.95 http://www.nolo.com/). Don`t let the year end without making sure your kids and family are taken care of.

Even down to planning your funeral. See A Team Masters for more information and choices. Savings with every purchase.
