Zen and the Art of Estate Plan Maintenance

You may remember the bestseller Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance which explores many themes, including the dichotomy between the "romantic" approach to life versus the "classical" approach--in the moment versus rational analysis--and the common ground linking them. The sense of mastery and peace of mind that comes with the author's ability to maintain his older, classic motorcycle versus his friend's lack of interest in understanding how to maintain his expensive new one and his resulting frustration when it breaks down, forcing him to rely on professionals to repair it, are key themes.

Considerations in Appointing Guardians of Minor Children Under Wills

In addition to purchasing a first home, the birth of a child is another momentous life event that often spurs people to prepare a will. Expecting parents and parents of young children are usually keen to put wills in place in order to ensure that if something happens to them, their children will be cared and provided for. While many parents are aware that this planning includes appointing guardians of their minor children in their wills, they may not fully understand these appointments or the considerations that should go into making them.
