Estate plans provide a roadmap outlining how an individual’s personal and financial affairs should be handled after their death or in the event of incapacity. Estate plans can be modified and should be considered growing and adaptable documents. Your estate planning documents should be periodically reviewed and updated so that they reflect the changes in your life.
Estate plans can also name an appropriate person to raise your children in the event you are unable to do so. The versatility of estate plans can allow you to prepare for life’s changes like getting married, having children and grandchildren, divorce, incapacity and death. Proper estate planning can also help prevent the unfortunate conflicts which often arise in these situations.
I had another attorney helped me draft my will, but I did not feel as though my needs were properly addressed. I called Joe and he helped me to not only draft a newer and better will, but also to fully understand what I was signing! I trust his work and I am so glad I decided to have him take a second look.
