Ask yourself these questions
- What will happen to your assets when you pass away?
- Who will take care of your children?
- Who will make important decisions for you if you become incapacitated?
Estate planning addresses these important questions and many more.
Through proper estate planning, you can provide support for your family, avoid probate, avoid or minimize taxes, protect a business, preserve a family cabin, provide for a charity, and minimize family conflict through a clear, legally proper expression of your wishes. Without an estate plan in place, the court system and the government will determine what happens to your assets and your children. With proper estate planning, you remain in control instead of the government.
