Another year and another bevy of interesting developments in Michigan probate law.
An update: In lame duck session, both houses of the Michigan legislature passed the Michigan version of the Uniform Directed Trustee Act, and the law was signed by the Governor. I discussed this important new law in the recent post: The Next Big Thing in Michigan Trust Law (click on the name to read the post), which also appears as #5 in the list below.
For the record, the five posts (click on the name to go to the post) with the most traffic in 2018 were:
- Medicaid Planners Get Rare Win from COA.
- Practice Alert: Homeowners’ Coverage Doesn’t Extend to Trust
- Storm Clouds in Elder Law Land
- Phone App “document” is Valid Will in Michigan
- The Next Big Thing in Michigan Trust Law
I realize the trend has been for me to write more frequently about appellate cases as they come out, maybe less ramblings about the law and practice generally. I hope that’s ok. In any event, that seems to be where my interest lies. It could change.
Thanks for reading. Happy New Year.
