Careful estate planning is a gift you give your family
Planning for the end of life or a medical crisis is not generally everyone’s favorite topic. The fact is, everyone needs a current will and other important legal documents in place, whether you are married or single, have children or not, are younger or older. So many people finish a divorce, or experience a significant life change, and never update these crucial documents. Or never got around to creating them in the first place. Neglecting the issue can have disastrous results for the remaining family and loved ones upon an unexpected health crisis or a death.
Would your loved ones be equipped to make the medical decisions necessary in a time of crisis, or deal with the complexities of the probate process, while also dealing with grief, sadness and loss?
If you were to die today – what would happen to your assets? What would happen to your children? Does your family know your wishes as to your funeral, your burial?
What if you were to become incapacitated? Does your family know who can make decisions on your behalf? Do they know your wishes as to your medical treatment and end of life care?
