I recently met with a family whose father recently passed away. They were dealing with unfortunate sibling
disputes as a result of their father’s passing without an
estate plan. Who gets what property? How should things be divided and who pays the bills were some of the questions we worked through.
This situation plus the thousands of dollars in court probate and attorney’s fees that will be spent trying to resolve it could have easily been prevented with an estate plan. Indulge me for a second and ask yourself:
Do I have a will?
Do I have a trust?
Do I know the difference between a will and a trust?
What will happen to the kids if we are both gone at the same time?
Do I want any life preserving measures taken on my behalf if I am unable to communicate my preferences?
How much debt will I leave my family if I die without a plan?
Do I have to have millions to have an estate plan?
Is an estate plan going to be expensive?
