This new Second Edition of this book is written by attorneys and published by Davenport Press. This book focuses on Wills and Estate Planning legal documents which deal with how a person can control on illness or death their health care, end of life issues, money, property, family, funeral, and more. After a quick discussion of law this book provides many ready to use Michigan legal forms which also can be downloaded free. Filled out samples of all forms show exactly how to use all the legal forms. Forms include: (1) Michigan Statutory Will (a "Will" is a legal document that lets people control issues after their death, and the "Statutory Will" form is written by the Michigan legislature to help most people and it is well accepted by judges but it has some inflexible language about gifting and favors family); (2) Last Will And Testament (With Guardians) (this Will form uses flexible language to let people gift their property and money as wanted, and this form also has a "Guardians" paragraph to in case it is needed name guardians to care for persons under 18 and their property); (3) Last Will And Testament (No Guardians) (this is a Will form like Form 2 but with no paragraph on guardians and is for people with no child under 18 and not giving anything to minors); (4) Self-Proving Affidavit (this form is often done with a Will to help the later process after a death of proving a Will was signed correctly, and this form makes it more likely a Will is followed); (5) Tangible Personal Property List (this form lets people easily write down in a list outside a Will wanted gifts of "tangible personal property" like clothes, furniture, tools, vehicles, and jewelry); (6) Codicil (this form can make changes to an existing Will, but most just do a new Will); (7) Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care (in case a person is later incapacitated and unable to control their health care this form lets a person name a "Patient Advocate" to control health care (often this is a spouse, adult child, or friend), and also if wanted give health care instructions); (8) Do-Not-Resuscitate Order (this form lets a person say paramedics and others should not try to restart the heart or breathing (usually this care is called C.P.R.)); (9) Durable General Power of Attorney (this form lets power over a person's money, property, and more be shared with someone like spouse or trusted friend to let them do things); and (10) Power Of Attorney Over Child (this form lets a parent give power over a child so when a child is away from parents someone else can make decisions, like with health care or school issues).show more
