When should I start my Estate Planning?
Now, to put it simply, it is never too early to start estate planning, and there are certain estate planning objectives that you should immediately get squared away no matter what your circumstances. A Will is principal among them. Without at least a will in place, the ultimate decision about how your estate will be distributed will be made by the government. Yet, with the proper Will and/or Trust in place, you can control how the estate is distributed and even avoid probate.
Additionally, any individual or couple with minor children should absolutely consider a guardianship and trust for their children. Nobody can predict their own death, but your child’s well being is too important to leave to chance. Our wills and estate planning articles and templates help to understand these issues well and will make sure your estate plan will address the issues most important to you.
