Thinking about our friends, our loved ones, or even ourselves passing away isn’t easy for anyone. But if and when it happens, it’s best to have a plan in place. Under state law, a person’s estate is made up of their personal, financial, and real estate property, and other holdings. After his or her death, the estate is distributed according to a will or, if there is no will, a probate court could decide where the property goes. This section details Connecticut estate planning laws defining the requirements for creating a valid will and how citizens can declare their wishes regarding life-prolonging medical procedures.
