The Novi Civic Center is located at 45175 W. Ten Mile Road in Novi.     

The seminar will provide attendees with information on wills, trusts, powers of attorney, how to begin probate proceedings, when to consider use of guardianships and conservatorships and how “avoiding probate” could cause more harm than good.
