Free Wills/Estate Planning Clinic

  • A last will dictates who will inherit your assets, your IIM account and Tribal trust lands and, most importantly, it will also designate who will care for your minor children.
  • A Community Property Agreement puts into writing that you and your spouse’s property belongs to the marital community. Most real assets will automatically transfer to your spouse upon your death.
  • A Durable Power of Attorney is used while you are still alive but for some reason unable to take care of your finances. This document will designate a person to help you during incapacitation. 
  • A Medical Power of Attorney is used while you are still alive as well, but it is to designate a person to help doctors decide what is medically in your best interest.
  • A Health Care Directivel Living Will directs doctors on subjects such as “do not resuscitate”. 
  • A Directive to Family lets your family know your wishes on after-death arrangements (i.e. cremation vs. burial, ceremony, etc).

All information is confidential very little personal information is needed to prepare these documents.

The next Clinic will be held OCTOBER 22ND-24th, 2019
