Say you’re a 30-year-old professional. Should you have an estate plan? Say you’re a 45-year-old who has been working for a long time and has accumulated quite a few assets. Should you have an estate plan? Say you’re 60 or 65, and you know that you only have about 15 years left (or so) on this Earth. Should you have an estate plan?
The answer to every question here is “yes.” Estate plans are incredibly important because they allow you to dictate how your affairs and assets are handled after you die. Without that say, the state or intestate laws will dictate how your estate is handled. That can leave your beneficiaries in an unfortunate spot where they may not get what they think they deserve (and that may even be a correct thought, given what you may have intended but what never made it to paper).
You need an estate plan, and when you put it together, you need someone there with you to help with all of the legal steps. Compliance is a key matter when it comes to an estate plan, and not many people have a lot of experience of knowledge of all the rules and laws that apply to estate plans.
