Regarding legal documents, there are many different types that can help you plan how your affairs will be handled in the future. Many of these documents have names that sound alike, so make sure you are getting the documents you want. Also, state laws do vary, so find out about the rules, requirements and forms used in your state. Wills and Trusts let others know where you want your money and property to go after you die. Advance Directives let you make arrangements for your care if you become sick. There are two ways to this. One is a Living Will, which gives you a say in your health care if you are too sick to make your wishes known. In a Living Will, you can state what kind of care you do or don’t want. This can make it easier for family members to make tough health care decisions for you. I will give you more information about legal matters the next time. As I said, there are two ways. I will give the second way next time.    

See you in two weeks, Chris
