In this book, Ashar and Baker give Michigan residents a complete systematic plan all in one place to protect their assets, limit their taxes, and know that their estate planning will work to protect their loved ones.  This easy to understand guide, written in plain English, clears up the confusion about estate planning.  It answers all five of the “W” questions: who, what, where, when and why.
 
 
Who?  Everyone who wants their wishes honored after their death.
What?  Learn exactly what an estate and estate plan actually are.
Where?  This estate plan is specific to Michigan residents and the laws in that state.
When?  It’s never too soon.  An estate plan is a living document that changes as life changes, so the time to plan is now.
Why?  An estate plan is the legal protection needed.
 
 
The authors put estate planning all together for you, concluding with an Appendix with forms and worksheets to get started, and a Glossary of Terms for any further clarification.
