WHY AN ESTATE PLAN IS SO IMPORTANT
Estate planning is a process that ensures your financial goals are fulfilled after death or in the event you are unable to make these decisions. The goals of your estate plan may include: providing for family (dependents - adult children, minor children, grandchildren), avoiding probate court which helps to ensure privacy, protecting your business, providing for charity, reducing estate taxes and more.
You're not too young to get started
Estate planning is not just something one should do in their older years. Parents with a young family can benefit from early estate planning to provide for their minor children's future and financial well-being. It is important to designate a legal guardian, someone who you shares the same life values and will care for, raise, and love your children.
Prepare for the unexpected
Your estate plan will also allow you to plan for the future and the possibility that you may become disable or incapacitated. It will allow you to chose someone to manage your financing affairs if you are unable to do so. It will also allow you select someone who can make health care decisions on your behalf if you become unable to participate in those decisions.
Provides control and freedom
Having an estate plan that is tailored to your needs and goals will provide you control of your future and help you provide for your loved ones. Your estate plan can mitigate future cost and avoid timely legal proceedings, and will take many decisions out of the hands of the court (how your assets are divided, who will raise your children, and who can make financial or health care decisions on your behalf).
