Questions Regarding Estate Planning

Estate Planning is a critical part of having your affairs in order in case something happens to you. Many people fail to address estate planning because they feel they are too young or don’t want to deal with the idea of their own mortality.

Why is estate planning so important?

If you do not have an estate plan, will, probate, or trust in place, you will have no say in what happens in regards to your medical care if you are unable to speak for yourself, or what happens to your personal property, including finances, upon your death. Additionally, you will not have the peace of mind in knowing that your affairs are settled and in order so that your family does not have to worry about anything. By working with our law firm to create a will, trust, or to probate your assets, you will be able to trust that your personal matters are taken care of in a way that you agree with. If you don’t have medical directives in place, someone else can easily control your medical care without your input. Without a proper plan or Power of Attorney assigned to a family member or someone close to you, simple decisions can easily become over complicated because of the legal ramifications of not having these things in place. By taking the time to set up a Power of Attorney or medical directive, you will be able to have peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out the way that you want them to be, no matter what state you are in or what situation may arise. Your assets are also important when it comes to estate planning. Without a proper will or probate of your assets in place, things can once again become complicated because you have no say in the matters. Many family feuds and disagreements have started over the death of a loved one with no legal will or directive in place for their assets and property upon their passing. It just makes sense to have your affairs in order, so that you and your family members can rest easy, and have one less thing to worry about at the end of the day. Estate planning is very important for these reasons, among others, and is something that you should take the time to sort out, so that your family members aren’t left to figure things out after the fact. It doesn’t matter if you have $1 million in assets or $10,000 in assets, because everyone needs a good estate plan or will to ensure their affairs are taken care of no matter how big or small.
