The Year is Coming to an End. Don’t Put Off Your Estate Planning Any Longer.

2014 is coming to an end and at some point we all create New Year resolutions. One of your New Year resolutions should be to complete your estate planning if you have not done so already. Why wait when you can start off the year with the peace of mind that you have this task completed?

Preparing your estate planning will allow you to designate specific beneficiaries for all your assets, appoint trustees to manage your assets in case of death or incapacity, appoint guardians over your minor children, and appoint agents for your Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Property.  In addition, if you’ve recently increased your assets; refinanced your home; had more children; considered changing your Trustees or the guardians for your children, you may be due for a Restatement or Amendment to your Trust, a Codicil to your Will, or just a new deed. These are all important aspects of your and your family’s life. Therefore, why wait until the New Year?
