Estate planning is likely to be a lot easier than you think.
As with most tasks, there are many reasons to be found for putting them off. A columnist details the challenges that she and her husband faced in an article in The Gleaner “HARDY: No reason to delay estate planning.”
The article is instructive and enlightening. The writer details how once she and her husband did come to an agreement about their children, the process of getting an estate plan was not as difficult as they thought.
This might be because they took the critical step of going to an estate planning attorney instead of trying to do things for themselves.
The attorney provided the couple with a questionnaire that allowed them to think about things that they had not even considered and make their own decisions about those things. If the couple had tried to create their own estate plans, they likely would have been incomplete because of the things they did not know.
An estate planning attorney can guide you through the not-so-difficult task of creating an estate plan that fits your unique circumstances.
