Make sure your estate plan is up-to date. If you do not have one in place, get busy putting your wishes in writing.
Estate planning is not for someone else or only the wealthy. It’s about you, regardless of the size of your bank account or the value of your assets.
Many of the challenges that I see families face (when someone is ill or during the estate administration process) can be prevented with proper planning.
Consult with an estate planning attorney about your particular sitution.
