Estate planning topic of discussion


FARMINGTON — The Upper Kennebec Valley Chapter of the Small Woodland Owners Association of Maine will hold an informative session, Estate Planning and Contracts, Your Questions Answered, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, June 25, at the Farmington Town Office, 153 Farmington Falls Road.

Attorney Tom Peters and Attorney and Forester Mike Maines of Peters & Associates in Lewiston will explain contract basics to use when dealing with a forester or a logging contractor, including sample contracts. They will then speak on estate and succession planning, including discussion on the basic three documents: Will, power of attorney and living will (health care directive). The final portion will deal with planning for the succession of family forestland ownerships, camps, and cottages. Each situation is unique, so there are no standard solutions, but they’ll describe the basics: LLCs, S-corporations, and wills.

This is a continuation of the session on succession planning with Rich Merk of the SWOAM. It is free and open to the public, and pre-registration is not required.
