Many people assume that estate planning is only done by the elderly or people with vast estates.  This is a mistake as most adults or couples should plan for their estate which would include planning for their assets, care for their children, or plan for incapacity.

The following are just a few reasons to consider estate planning:

  1. Estate plans protect your family including minor children;
  2. Estate plans can eliminate questions or chaos upon a loved ones passing;
  3. Estate plans can protect against extra taxes;
  4. Proper estate plans can protect against certain governmental liens;
  5. Estate plans allow you to determine your care plan if you should lose capacity;
  6. Estate plans can avoid probate court;
  7. Estate plans can create a legacy;
  8. Estate plans can retain certain property within a family, if desired;
  9. Estate plans can determine guardians for your minor children;
  10. Estate plans can assist with and eliminate disputes regarding burial instructions;
  11.  Estate plans can create powers of attorneys that spring into action when needed

These are just a few reasons to consider estate planning. Estate planning is less expensive that you may think and can really save your family and estate money by preplanning now.
