Highlight

A will and a revocable living trust may be considered together as a part of a decedent's estate plan.
In constructing an estate plan, courts construe the plan to carry out the intent of the settlors or the testators.
Under North Dakota law, a surviving spouse's right to an elective share, a homestead allowance, an exempt property allowance, and a family allowance is governed by the laws of the decedent's domicile at death.
A district court's findings of fact must be adequate to understand the basis for the court's decision.
