The best person to direct the details regarding your legacy, assets, children, and medical decisions isn't the court. It's YOU!
Doesn't everyone have a will?
Not even close. Only 42 percent of adults currently have estate preservation documents such as a will or living trust.* These numbers are alarming, because they mean that many families run the risk of having their estates settled in probate courts. That’s not a good prospect, especially for families with children under 18.
Make estate preservation part of your strategy and be sure to have a will.
So how do you get your living will squared away?Work with a qualified lawyer to put an estate plan in place that:
- Ensures your legacy reaches your intended heirs
- Helps to manage estate taxes
- Sets up medical and financial powers of attorney, so that someone can take care of you should you become incapacitated
