Maybe It’s Time to Make a Will
Cindy Campbell, a family attorney with offices in Naperville and Chicago who focuses on estate planning, guardianships and collaborative family law and mediation, will present an informative session, Still Need to Create Your Will? at 6:30 p.m., October 17, at Al’s Pizza, in Warrenville. “Some of the topics include how to protect your legacy and ensure your loved ones are cared for; the benefits of a trust versus a will; and what and who to consider in creating your documents,” says Campbell.
There are many different types of wills—most pertain to monetary value, such as a last will and testament—but an ethical will (also known as legacy letters) is beneficial to pass ethical values from one generation to the next. Campbell says, “While an ethical will is not in lieu of a last will and testament, it can be a nice supplement and a way to pass on more than just money.”
