Estate planning should not be complex, depressing, or reserved only for seniors or those seriously ill. Today, an estate plan, which is more than a well-drafted will, should be an essential component in anyone’s life.
Comprehensive estate planning ensures that your estate passes to whom you want, when you want, and in the manner you have chosen. But, an estate plan is not just about control over your assets, it also protects you at incapacity. It will let you – not the courts – maintain control over your assets and medical decisions when you are unable to do so for yourself.
The Time to Prepare is Now
By planning now, you can rest assured that your desires will be carried out. This is why a complete estate plan is an essential component in anyone’s life plan.
When life changes, you should have your plan reviewed. When you experience a life changing event, such as marriage or divorce, you should have a qualified attorney review your estate plan. Estate planning is a process and the plan is not finite.
