Q: Do I need an estate plan?
A: The short answer is “YES!”
No matter how old you are, what your occupation is, whether or not you have children or are married or single ‑ YOU need to have an estate plan in place!
An estate plan is more than a will ‑ it is a collection of well written documents that plans for and provides for the distribution of your assets and possessions at the time of your death, while avoiding or substantially decreasing unwanted costs that will take from your assets ‑ such as probate court fees, state and federal estate taxes, and more!
Your estate is the collection of all of your assets, finances and possessions at the time of your death. These are your most treasured belongings, your hard-earned life savings, perhaps the home you raised your children in!
