Estate planning is often confusing, stressful and uncomfortable. It is planning for the future. It is creating a plan for your children and family members. Estate planning typically encompasses the creation of a will, power of attorney and a healthcare directive/living will. Each of these documents have a distinct function for your future.
Wills must be carefully drafted in order to protect your assets and your loved ones. A well written will can assure that your wishes are upheld and your family is provided for.
Part of estate planning is planning for the unexpected events that could happen in your life.
