Why You Should Make An Estate Plan Now!
It's a misconception that only the wealthy or retired need an estate plan. The truth is that everyone should have a plan.
Want to make sure that the family heirlooms go to your favorite niece? There is no guarantee unless you have a will directing them to her.
Is your cat or dog the love of your life? Do you want Shirley across the street to spoil them rotten, or your nephew Greg that can't even take care of a fish? Shouldn't you decide who is the best person to take care of them if something were to happen to you?
Are you a single parent that lives paycheck to paycheck and doesn't see the value of an estate plan? I'm sure you would want to decide who is going to continue to take care of your child in your absence. It doesn't matter what you have told your sister, your Mother, or your sweet next door neighbor. If you want to make sure that your child is cared for by the people you trust you have to have a legal plan in place.
Most estate plans aren't about money. They're about peace of mind in the knowledge that what you love, from records to kids, end up in the right hands.
