Your estate plan will outline how you will leave your assets to your loved ones. It does not always matter what you leave, but how you leave it! Many people will delay or even forego estate planning. The most common reasons center around the thought that an individual must be wealthy to warrant the preparation of estate planning documents or cannot afford the legal costs involved.
You can begin to plan your estate at any point in time. Even individuals with little assets (and especially minor children) benefit from basic estate planning documents. A trusted estate planning attorney experienced in preparing wills and trusts may prepare these essential documents for a reasonable fee. So, what documents do you need?
