Davenport's Missouri Wills and Estate Planning Legal Forms
This book written by attorneys and published by Davenport Press provides a quick review of Missouri law and a good range of ready to use legal forms. This book covers Missouri Wills and Estate Planning legal forms which can control on illness or death a person's health care, property and money, children, agent to act for a person, funeral and burial, and most other things. This book contains 9 ready to use legal forms (which also can be downloaded free) and has filled out examples showing exactly how to complete the legal forms. The forms are: 1) Last Will And Testament (lets one give orders to on death gift most one's property and money, say less burdensome legal options can be used, pick a person as executor to do things after death, and in case needed pick guardian and conservator for minors under 18); 2) Last Will And Testament (No Guardians) (this Will has no "Guardians" paragraph and is for those without a child under 18 and not giving any property to minors); 3) Self-Proving Affidavit (this is done when a Will is signed or later to help the process of later proving a Will was signed correctly, and this increases chances a Will will be followed); 4) Tangible Personal Property List (lets person write in a simple list outside a Will wanted gifts to occur on death of "tangible personal property" like clothes, furniture, tools, cars, and jewelry, and the list can be done or redone anytime and just needs to be signed); 5) Durable Power of Attorney For Health Care Choices & Health Care Choices Directive ("Advance Directive") (in case one later can't control health care due to inability to speak, inability to understand, unconsciousness, or similar this form lets a person be named "agent" to control things and/or instructions to be given, and lets more orders be given like on funeral and burial); 6) Declaration ("Living Will") (lets person order that doctors and family are not to give if a person is later in a terminal condition health care that will not help and only unduly prolong dying); 7) Do-Not-Resuscitate (this form can be used when in very bad health to show paramedics and others not to try restarting the heart or breathing (called cardiopulmonary resuscitation or C.P.R.)); 8) General Durable Power Of Attorney (often called a "Financial Power Of Attorney" or just "Power of Attorney" this form lets power over one's money, property, and other matters be shared with a spouse, adult child, or any trusted person so they can act for a person); and 9) Power Of Attorney Of Parent (this form lets a parent or similar give power over a child, including medical care and school and home matters, to a person named to help when a child may be away from parent like for travel, school, camp, health care, vacation, or parent incarceration).
