Estate Planning - Where to Start?

Setting up a will is something everyone should do, but how do you get started? What's the difference between a will and a living will?

Nolo is a publisher of all kinds of layman's legal guides, and they have a helpful page on getting started. There's a FAQ plus a list of articles explaining various aspects of wills, living wills, and power of attorney. If you need more information, check with your local library. Chances are they have Nolo books on these and related topics. Not only is the information written in terms most people can understand, the books also have forms inside that you can photocopy and fill out yourself. It's possible you might want to purchase something to have at hand whenever you need it, but you can use the library books as test drives, so to speak, reading through several to determine which one(s) will be best for your situation.
