Attorney Guthrie’s presentation was scheduled to cover the core fundamentals of planning an estate include what an estate and assets are, the difference between probate and non-probate assets, how the probate court system works, the different types of documents that are involved in planning including last wills and testaments, living trusts, pour over wills, powers of attorney, and advance directives, how to plan for incapacity and difficult end of life healthcare decisions, mistakes in planning that commonly occur, and a comprehensive list of items that need to be put together to make sure a plan is properly concluded. Mr. Guthrie answered questions that included the validity of a will if someone has a different name from when the will was originally made and how to best distribute assets to children that had various degrees of contact and assistance. Attorney Evan Guthrie was happy to be able to teach and educate on such an important topic for a community and segment of the population that may need an estate plan more than others or to learn more about the plan they already have in place.
