Do You Need A Will, Trust Or Estate Plan?
Many people believe they are not old enough, do not own enough assets or simply have no need for wills or estate plans. However, you do not know what tomorrow holds.
An unexpected divorce or death of a spouse, a sudden onset of disability or a catastrophic personal injury or even a change in estate planning laws may leave your children, parents and other loved ones in a bad situation. Failure to leave specific instructions or to establish legally binding documents can lead to disputes between family members. A formal plan can provide them with answers to such questions as:
- Who has authority to make medical and financial decisions on your behalf if you are no longer able to do so?
- Who will care for your minor children if you are gone or incapacitated?
- Who will receive your assets and personal belongings after your death?
- Did you wish to donate items to charitable organizations?
- Who will probate or guide your estate — and your family — through the administrative process?
