I need a new will since my husband died 3 months ago. Second marriage for both of us, no children from either marriage. I have one brother who I am not close to. Have a few nieces, but none I am 'good friends' with. I need help deciding Durable POA, Health Care Surrogate, who gets any monies, etc. I have one friend but don't want to put her name on everything, she is not a well person, kind of lost them all taking care of my man for the last 7 years.
What do I need.... an attorney, a financial person of some kind? I want someone who can suggest possible ways to go. I am not sure whose name I want on anything. I am not rich, but comfortable. If I died by accident, I don't want the person now in the will to get my money. What expert should I talk to. Confused.
