CCPL Money Monday: Estate Planning

Monday, October 21, 2019

Every family faces death of a member sooner or later, and most families are not well prepared for this eventuality. It is much harder to deal with all the legalities and decisions that must be made concerning the care of elder family members, end-of-life issues, disposition of property, guardianship of dependents, and related issues when enduring life altering losses and emotions. Michelle Pierce, University of Wyoming (UW) Community Development Extension Educator, will teach this class at Campbell County Public Library on Monday, October 21 at 6pm and help you become prepared for what comes. Next month: Shopping for the Holidays on a Budget • November 18

Pierce will refer to several publications created with the guidance of Wyoming estate attorney Aaron Lyttle (Cheyenne, WY). They are designed to help families with the difficult steps needed before and when a death occurs.

The eleven estate planning publications are titled: Introduction to Estate Planning; Estate Planning Checklist: Information to Assemble Before Consulting Your Attorney; After a Death: What Steps are Needed?; Wyoming Wills: Some Suggestions for Getting the Most from Estate Planning; Death Certificates; A Walk Through Probate; Disinheritance; The Personal Property Memorandum; Guardianships and Conservatorships; Advance Health Care Directives; and Durable Power of Attorney.

Pierce states, as outlined in the information presented, “Self-help documents are no replacement for proper legal advice. Each family situation is unique, and one should always use an attorney to make final preparation and draw up the final documents.”

You can access the publications and more at: (go to publications and type in estate).
