In these uncertain times, I wanted to include a number of simple tips that can help you plan for the unexpected. If this pandemic teaches us anything, it is that life is precious and can be fleeting, so it is incumbent upon us to plan for the unforeseen. Unfortunately, more than half of all American adults don’t have a Will in place. This lack of planning can have a devastating effect if a crisis occurs. If you are incapacitated, but alive, the choices regarding your medical care may not be your own. A minor child’s fate, if both of his parents die in an accident, will be determined by a judge.
Estate Planning can save you from these and many more unforeseen tragic outcomes. Nearly every adult should do some basic Estate Planning, even those with few assets. Spending time now to have your estate in order is giving your family peace of mind if something should happen to you.
During this collective societal “pause”, I wanted to provide these Essential Estate Planning Tips that everyone should consider. We all finally have some time to consider doing what we have long put on the back burner.
There is also no need to leave your home, or wait for my office hours to resume, in order to complete these essential documents.
I am continuing to provide complimentary half hour consultations via phone or video chat to anyone who is interested in learning what their options are.
