Who Needs An Estate Plan?
Many people believe that only wealthy people need to develop an estate plan. The truth is that anyone, regardless of income level, can benefit from thorough estate planning. We can help you create a plan that meets your unique needs.
When Should You Make An Estate Plan?
Just because your estate plan will not be needed until near the end of your life, it does not mean that you should wait to begin planning. There is no telling what tomorrow can bring, so you should be sure to start your estate plan today.
What If You Already Have An Estate Plan?
It is always a good idea to regularly update your estate plan every few years or after any kind of major life event. If you had a child, adopted, married, divorced, lost a spouse or child, or experienced a notable loss or gain in income, make sure you update your estate plan to reflect your current wishes.
Why Do You Need A Lawyer For Estate Planning?
Although it is possible to create your estate plan on your own, it exposes your estate to disputes. If your estate plan is not ironclad, someone may contest your will, and your last wishes may not be upheld after the dispute. We can help you make your estate plan in a way that reduces or eliminates any risk of dispute.
Now Is The Time To Start Planning
We understand that it may be uncomfortable to plan for your death, but it is an act of love to ensure that those who matter to you most are taken care of, even in the event of premature or unexpected death. Every adult, and especially every parent, should plan for the future of loved ones through informed and thoughtful estate planning.
