Introduction to Estate Planning
A proper estate plan is essential to ensure that your assets go to the people and organizations you love most. Once completed, it provides peace of mind, the framework for continued updates as your life situation changes, and does not impede your daily life in any way. It ensures that you do not leave a complicated and costly mess for your heirs to sort out in the court system over the course of a year or more. Learn the basics of estate planning, and why it enables your legacy to live on precisely as you most wish it to be.
