    Lawyers agree

    Answered . This is a good time for you to consult an attorney about the whole estate planning and probate process. A simple trust and a few additional documents could make your son's transition easier when you pass away. Just call around to estate planning attorneys for a few free consultations, and ask them personal questions and find someone you like to help you out that sets reasonable prices. In MI, full estate plans with trusts can range from around $1000 to over $4000 depending on the complexity assets, and obviously the attorney.

    Answered . A lot will depend on what estate planning documents are in place and whether you have knowledge of all the estate planning documents your husband had. While this question seems simple it is very complex. What are the future plans for assets. sounds like you nees to sit down with an attorney for an hour or so.
