The Importance of Life Planning
Estate Planning isn't only about planning for after you're gone, it's about planning for the rest of your life to make sure your assets are properly protected. No matter how many or how few assets you have, or if you are single without children, you need to have an Estate Plan to ensure your assets are handled the way you want.
If you haven't planned properly, your hard won assets and your family are vulnerable both during your lifetime, during times of incapacity and after you're gone. During your lifetime you and your family could lose assets due to divorce, lawsuits, accidents or incapacity - just to name a few. After you're gone, your assets and your family could be tied up in extensive court proceedings costing thousands of dollars. Even worse, those assets might be distributed pursuant to state law and not your own wishes - and your heirs will likely get less due to taxes and creditors.
To further complicate matters, if you have children, failure to plan properly could leave them in the temporary custody of complete strangers until the court can figure out what to do and their long-term guardian could be the last person on earth you'd want raising your kids.
Fortunately, our estate planning lawyers can help you avoid all of those horrible scenarios. Working closely with you, we will help you make sure that you, your family and your assets are protected during your lifetime and, should you so chose, for several generations after you're gone.
