Last Will and Trust (at Last!)

In late November, I wrote about the fact that we were finally putting together an estate plan. Well, last Friday, just before everything shut down for the Holidays, my wife and I finally put the whole “last will and testamentary trust” thing to rest… And not a moment too soon, as this was one of our New Year’s Resolutions dating back to January 1, 2006. Even though it took 11.75 months to get it done, it still counts. Right?

    How do we decide how to set up the trust? Our sons are only 19 months apart … do we choose to split the trust equally upon our death or after the youngest son finishes college? Any advice would be appreciated!

  2. Jessica: More details here. The wills and trusts cost $450 ($225 each for my wife and I) and the power of attorney stuff was $75 apiece. Total was $600. I was quote less by some attorneys, but nobody that we trusted.

    Great job! My husband and I are about to start the same process now that we have a 1 year old son. I was wondering, how much did the lawyer charge you, ballpark? Want to know the going rate for this type of thing.
