Your estate plan is a window into your wishes. You have to ensure that those wishes are put in a way that makes it easy for your loved ones to know what you want.
We know that thinking about an estate plan isn't easy. You don't want to think about your death, but you can save your family members a lot of grief by taking care of this now. We can help you to learn about what options you have for your estate plan.
Convey your wishes clearly
The wording in the will and other documents must clearly convey your wishes. You should ensure that there isn't any room for someone to claim that the will or other documents should be interpreted in any way that you didn't intend. While you do need a concise will, you also need to ensure that it meets legal standards for a valid will. We can help you to ensure your will conveys your wishes in a legal manner.
Use a multifaceted approach
Your estate plan should likely include more than just a will. You should also think about power of attorney designations and possibly trusts. A multifaceted approach to estate planning takes the guesswork out of what you want to happen. We can discuss your wishes and desires with you so that we can let you know your options.
Periodically check the terms
There is a chance that you will need to update sections of your estate plan. Take the time to review everything periodically so that you can ensure everything is up-to-date. This is especially important if you have had a change in circumstances, such as having a child.
