Estate Planning Is a Critically Important Task Right Now
If you’ve never drafted an estate plan before or your current estate plan needs to be revised, please don’t wait to seek legal guidance. As news story after news story reminds us all, the “unexpected” needs to be treated as if it were expected. You are probably taking significant steps to protect your family from contracting the virus. But even those who are most diligent about social distancing, mask wearing, etc. remain at risk. You need to have an updated, accurate, and enforceable estate plan in place at all times to ensure that your wishes are respected and that your family’s future is protected, regardless of what kind of unexpected events may influence your life.
Estate planning begins with creating a will. A will helps to ensure that your assets and personal property are distributed according to your wishes after your death. However, a will is not the only estate planning tool you need to consider at this time. Even if you have no valuable property to speak of, you’ll want to make sure you have an advance healthcare directive in place so that healthcare providers know what your “medical wishes” are in the event that you can no longer communicate them. Our team is more than happy to advise you of additional estate planning tools that could benefit your unique situation as well.
