We are a recently retired couple & moved to CO from AK last

We are a recently retired couple & moved to CO from AK last year, so our wills are filed in AK. Do we need to update & file our wills here? Re updating, the only thing that's changed is that we sold our house in AK & bought some investment property in MI through our daughter & son-in-law there, who are r.e. agents; however, our wills are pretty basic--they don't list particular assets, they just say whichever of us dies first, the other inherits, & if we die together, our 3 daughters (in CO, MI, & NY) inherit equally, + our eldest, the one in MI, is named as our executor. Also, do we need to get new living wills/advance directives for CO?

I just finished three years of a very contentious divorce,

Hi there! I just finished three years of a very contentious divorce, and now I am ready to protect my assets and my children's assets. Should I do a living trust or a will? I hear that a living trust is better, but since I have never had either, I want to verify the best approach. I have a Legal Plan through my work (Google), so I can find a professional either way through that, I assume. How do I find the best person for me? What questions should I be asking? Thanks for your help!

Have California Pers question: My husband worked as a police

Have California Pers question:My husband worked as a police officer in Calif & retired disabled in 1983. He was married to his ex-wife from 82 to 86. He listed ex-spouse as beneficiary while they were married and when divorced prepared court docs himself. The papers did not specifically list the retirement. Court granted divorce. Has been receiving CalPERS mo. Industrial Disability Retirement income for over 30 yrs (option 2W) and would like to change beneficiary. Other than locating this woman and trying to get her to sign a waiver, is there any options for him to change beneficiaries? Thank you.

My older brother is on life support in Arkansas, from a gun

My older brother is on life support in Arkansas, from a gun shot two days ago. My aunt is trying to force the hospital to pull the plug. I know that he did not sign anything (power of attorney ) to anyone. He is married but has been separated for some time. What I am trying to find out is who has that right to make that call? I feel like there has not been enough time to see if he will get better. I live in Texas and may be unable to make it there in time to stop this action.
