What are some typical estate planning documents?

Question: What are some typical estate planning documents?

Answer: Typical estate planning documents include wills, trusts, and healthcare power of attorney. The wills provide that your heirs receive and how they receive your property. You may also have a trust; the trust is more complicated. The trust may be needed if you want to control when your heirs receive a property, restrictions on how they receive the property, or when they receive the property. In addition, you would also have your healthcare power of attorney in your living will which would be used for the family to make medical decisions if you became disabled, and also your durable power of attorney which would be used if you became disabled and needed your family to make financial decisions for you.
