Multiple wills are an established and increasingly popular estate planning strategy. Useful for a number of objectives, they often appeal to business owners, owners of foreign real estate, and individuals seeking additional privacy. While having multiple wills may seem like a simple solution to some testamentary issues, lawyers who prepare these documents must carefully draft them, with adequate consideration of relevant local laws, in order to avoid unintended and serious consequences. This program is designed to give you the knowledge and skills you need to decide when to recommend multiple wills to a client, and educate you about important drafting considerations to avoid duplicate bequests, revoking other wills, rendering all wills invalid, and other negative results. Leading estates practitioner Jordan Atin will address the authority for use of multiple wills, discuss when to recommend and how to explain the need for multiple wills to a client, and describe important provisions for effective multiple wills. By the end of the program you’ll have a better sense of whether multiple wills are the right estate planning tool for your clients, know important provisions to include in multiple wills to help ensure your client’s wishes are carried out, and understand how to avoid potential liability with multiple wills.
