Calling an individual's will "a profound documentary of a person's life," The Complete Guide to Wills: What You Need to Know Explained Simply, lays out all of the basics of what may be one of the most important tasks in life.
Explanations of different types of wills, from the standard will, the witnessed will, the holographic will (one that is handwritten and unwitnessed, often for privacy) to the video and electronic forms of wills start your guidebook to all things wills and final testament-related information.
Written by attorney Linda C. Ashar and Sandy Baker, examples of wills are abundant throughout the book. These examples give the reader a real sense of what a will is and does and shows its importance to all of us. Often relegated to an afterthought, this book explains and brings to light, in simple, no nonsense language, how important it is to prepare for your future, even after you are gone.
Legal terms are defined early and easily for the non-lawyer. Questions about life insurance, pensions and retirement accounts are outlined. The whole question of "who gets what" is entertained in one chapter, while the great importance of whom to choose as executor is explained in another.
This book gives a well-constructed, straightforward, straight-talking account of how to plan for the future. Worksheets, examples of wills and an in-depth glossary makes this book a great choice for those looking to plan ahead right now.
