Hi Moms!

I'm curious to know if any of you have created a living will or trust. We would like to create one, but don't really know where to begin and don't want it to turn into an incredibly costly endeavor. I'd love to know of your experiences in creating one and how you went about doing so. Also, if you are willing to share, what type of expense is involved in creating one? Thanks in advance!

Okay I'll be the one that says don't do it yourself. I work for an estate planning lawyer who mainly focuses on families with minor children and there are so many loopholes now that you want to take advantage of and make sure are rock solid for your kids' futures. I've recommended her to all of my friends and my son's preschool parents because she really is phenomenal. And, she'll even tell you if its better or even the best for you to go ahead and do it yourself. She's not after your money, I promise. She lost her husband when they were very young so she's all about the young family. Let me know if you're interested and I'll give you her info.
