Wills and Estate Planning
No one knows when they will die.
The impact of a death on spouses, children and dependents and other family members is at least disruptive and can often be stressful for the family. Frequently a key cog in the family is taken away.
We can alleviate much of the dislocation, however, by the simple step of making our Will and providing for the orderly transition of our affairs. In addition, thoughtful Estate planning can ease the care of children and provide for the future well-being of our loved ones.
No matter whether we are, in young adulthood senior years, we all should have a properly drawn-up and up-to-date Will. Unfortunately, for many of us planning our Estate and putting it down in writing is something we intend to do but often never actually get around to.
Estate Planning involves more than simply directing the disposition of your assets and possessions and providing for loved ones: it also encompasses making careful provisions for your care in the event you become unable to look after yourself as well as considering how your affairs should be managed in such an eventuality.
