Estate planning affords us the peace of mind of knowing that our assets will be distributed as we choose, and also provides us comfort in knowing that our families are far less likely to be burdened by the stress and anxiety of estate disputes and the elevated cost and burden of the probate process.
The crucial pieces of an estate plan include:
- Revocable Living Trust
- “Pour-Over” Will
- Financial Power of Attorney
- Advanced Health Care Directive
Each document plays an important role in your plan for future uncertainty.
