New Estate Planning Booklet

Respecting Your Wishes: Estate Planning for California Native Americans

Respecting Your Wishes


CILS recently published a 37-page booklet entitled, “Respecting Your Wishes: Estate Planning for California Native Americans.” The booklet is intended as a starting point of discussion on an often difficult subject, not as a comprehensive guide. Included is basic information on estate planning issues for the Native American population in California, including advanced planning for health and finances, Wills, trusts, non-probate transfers, the probate process, and federally held Native American trust assets. The booklet is available at no cost. Click on the icon to download or find it in our Self Help section.
