Plan your Estate, Enjoy Peace of Mind
A difficult question to confront: What happens after you pass?
This is the big question related to one of life's certainties, and the answer varies depending on who you ask. As estate planners we can help you figure out with certainty where your assets go and who will handle your affairs in the manner of your choosing and take some of the uncertainty out of life after your passing.
Whether you need a Last Will and Testament, Living Trust, Power of Attorney, Healthcare Directives or other important estate documents, we can get it done.
Why plan your estate?
Planning your estate ensures that your loved ones are taken care of after your passing. There is a common sentiment that estate planning is only for the wealthy and only for the distribution of assets, but there are so many more reasons to plan your estate:
- Guardianship of children — Who is going to take care of your children after you've passed? You control this decision through the terms of your Will.
- Peace of Mind — By ensuring that your loved ones are taken care of and your assets accounted for, you can rest easy knowing you've taken the appropriate steps to plan ahead.
- Ensuring that your wishes are met in an end of life situation — A healthcare directive provides you the choice of how you wish to be treated in certain medical situations.
- Avoiding Probate — While Probating an estate isn't as bad as commonly made out to be, it is still a process that can take months to complete. There are estate planning documents, namely a Trust, that privatizes your affairs and keeps them out of the courts.
There are even more reasons why you should plan your estate, but to put it in a word, planning your estate gives you control over it.
Don't let the Courts decide what happens to your estate, plan ahead and take control, so you can rest easy knowing your assets and affairs are taken care of.
