Estate planning is the process by which an individual or family arranges for the transfer of assets in anticipation of death and for possible incapacity during life. It is one of the most important steps any person can take to make sure that their final property and health care wishes are honored, and that loved ones are provided for in their absence or during times of incapacity.
Though often overlooked or put off in favor of more immediate concerns, a comprehensive estate plan can resolve a number of legal questions that arise whenever anyone dies: What is the state of their financial affairs? What real and personal property do they own? Who gets what? Does a personal guardian need to be appointed to care for minor children? What taxes, if any, will need to be paid from the estate? What funeral arrangements are appropriate?
