Frequently Asked Questions

What is estate planning, and why is it essential?

Estate planning involves preparing legal documents to manage and distribute your assets upon death or incapacitation. It’s crucial for ensuring your wishes are respected, reducing potential family disputes, and minimizing legal hurdles and taxes impacting your estate.

Do I need an estate plan if I don't have significant assets?

Yes, estate planning is not just for the wealthy. It’s about protecting what’s important to you, including appointing guardians for minor children, making healthcare decisions, and ensuring your possessions go to your chosen beneficiaries, regardless of their size.

How often should I update my estate plan?

It’s advisable to review and potentially update your estate plan every three to five years or after significant life events, such as marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, or significant changes in financial status. This ensures your estate plan reflects your current wishes and circumstances.
