What Is Estate Planning?
Why is estate planning so important? Because you never know what might occur and it's always a good idea to have your wishes made clear on paper just in case ... Because you don't want someone else to determine what happens to you, your family, and your assets ... Because you want to maintain control of the things dearest to you, even when you're not around.
When drawing up an estate plan, you're essentially arranging for your own care and for the eventual distribution of your assets to your loved ones. You, not the court, get to decide who receives empowering fiduciaries to carry out your financial and health care wishes if you're unable. You also get to decide what happens to your property and other assets and to whom they are distributed.
If you don't leave a Will in place at your death, the state determines how your assets will be distributed. This can result in financial devastation for your loved ones since assets may pass in an undesirable manner and the effects of income and estate taxes can be potentially severe. Therefore, it is in your best interest to consult with an estate planning attorney.
