Most people don’t give much thought to planning out their long-term care — at least, not until they start to feel like they’re getting “over the hill.” But planning ahead is important, especially when it could mean preventing future conflict for yourself or your loved ones.
Estate planning is a process that allows you to legally declare your preferences regarding many aspects of your life, such as your health care, your finances, your assets, and your beneficiaries. The purpose of developing an estate plan is to ensure that your wishes are known, should you become unable to express them yourself. Whether or not they are honored, though, depends on several factors, such as the quality of the plan you’ve put together, how clearly your wishes are expressed, and whether or not anyone involved contests what you’ve declared.
With so many factors and legal intricacies involved in estate planning, it’s crucial that you seek the appropriate counsel to ensure nothing important is overlooked. An experienced estate planning attorney can not only walk you through the legal process; they can also help you to ensure that your plan incorporates the services that may be most vital to your future specifically.
