There are a lot of questions that estate planning can create, and our team wants to help you answer a few of them.
When Should I Begin My Estate Planning?
No matter how old you are, now is always the best time to begin planning for tomorrow. Proper estate planning can help you account for everything that matters to you when you are seriously injured or even deceased.
Do I Need A Will?
According to the law, nothing is forcing you to have a will. However, that does not mean you could not use one. A will can save serious time and money when your loved ones are trying to disperse your estate.
What Happens To My Estate If I Do Not Have A Will?
If there is no will to help disperse your estate, your assets will go through the probate process, in which the state will oversee the dispersal. The problem with this is that the state could wind up allotting your property to someone other than the person(s) you thought deserved it the most. This process also takes a considerable amount of time, even years, in some cases.
