Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning
Undoubtedly, estate planning is a sensitive subject for many individuals--the thought of leaving loved ones behind is difficult and is a subject most people would rather ignore. As a result, the most important question may be left unanswered: are my affairs in order?
Whether your estate is large or small, the underlying purpose for planning is the same: provide certainty to your loved ones at a difficult time. Proper estate planning ensures that your property is distributed according to your intent upon your death. This minimizes cost and provides an added level of efficiency when administering to your final wishes.
