New technology poses new breed of estate planning questions


When drawing up your estate plan, there are many things to consider. Do you need a will? Should you use an attorney? Do you even need an estate plan? Should you set up trusts for your children? What happens if you become incapacitated?

But these are not questions that are new.

Technology, however, is adding to the list of questions you need to consider.

What if you decide to have a child or plan for a future child using methods such as artificial insemination, egg and embryo donation, even post-death conception? More than 250,000 babies are born each year using one of these methods.
