About the course

Learn to create an estate plan, get your paperwork in place and figure out what legacy you want to leave.  While we all don't like talking about the end of our lives, we do need a plan.  Having good documentation in place is a priority for Childfree people as the healthcare and governmental systems need to know what to do when there is no next of kin.
