It's not too late to sign up for Cabin Planning Seminar tonight!

If you have a family cabin (or “cottage” or vacation home), have you and your family given any thought to whether the property should be retained by the next generation and if so, how to best accomplish that result? If your goal is to transfer the cabin property to the next generation, advance planning is essential.

Local attorney, Ruthanne Hedstrom Vos with Mathison Law Office, will address the advantages and disadvantages of various options for transferring ownership of the family cabin and will provide handouts to help facilitate your family’s discussion and planning.
