What happens to your estate after you are gone is very much within your control.
Estate planning is not only for the wealthy; it is for everyone. It is simply the process of deciding where your assets are to be distributed after you die. You never know when you might need a will or an advance health care directive as illness, disability, or death can strike at any time.
Getting your affairs in order will help ensure that your assets go to the right people, your wishes about your medical care will be respected, and that the people you trust will be in charge of your affairs if you can’t make decision for yourself.
The right plan can protect the value of your estate and spare your loved ones unnecessary hassles and legal conflicts.
