I recently came across a great article in Forbes magazine that explains the importance of…
Estate Planning is for Everyone
Think because you don’t have a vast amount of assets/wealth that you don’t need an estate plan? Think again! Estate planning is important for everyone. Everyone will leave behind something that will need to be handled by their loved ones. If you have not planned for the unknown, your loved ones may not know what you have or what you would like to have done with it. The grief of dealing with the loss of a loved one is more than enough without the added stress of wrapping up their affairs with no idea where to start.
Estate planning is especially important if you have children. If you do not put your wishes in writing as to who will care for your children and any inheritance that you may leave them- no matter how small- the Court will do it for you. This can be a lengthy and expensive process, as well as a source of conflict amongst your survivors. Ensure a smooth process and that your children are taken care of if something does happen to you and/or your spouse by having an estate plan in place.
By working with an attorney, you can be sure that your documents are properly prepared and that your wishes will be carried out in the event that you are no longer here to convey them. This type of simple planning is more affordable than you may think, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing your loved ones will be provided for and taken care of as you would like is worth it’s weight in gold.
