Join Attorney Erik Martin for a free estate planning webinar and discover how to make sure your wishes are carried out exactly as you want. Even if you have an estate plan, new laws and overlooked items may mean your current plan is out of date or won’t work as intended.
It’s time to take action and take care of yourself and your loved ones! If you’ve been putting off updating your estate plan (or getting one in place), here are 7 reasons why you should attend one of our upcoming webinars and get the information you need to make the right decisions regarding your affairs:
- You don’t have a will and you have no idea who will get your assets if you die or what your family will have to go through to keep your property.
- Life is complicated.Maybe you’re in a blended family with “steps,” ex’s, new spouses, or family members who don’t get along. You want to make sure your family dynamics are accounted for and everyone is treated fairly in your plan.
- Your life is simple.Maybe you are one of the easy ones…. Everyone gets along and it’s all very straight forward…. but you still want to ensure that there are no surprises if something unexpected happens to you. You want it all to be clearly outlined, for your loved ones to have somewhere to turn for help and for it to go as smoothly as possible.
- You want a trusted loved one making medical decisions for youand not the State or the Court system, in the event you become disabled or incapacitated.
- You are not sure what to do with “non-probate assets" such as life insurance proceeds, and how that should interact with your Estate Plan.
- Do you need a Trust? What is a trust and why might it be essential when you have minor children.
- You wonder…. Will your old plan still work, after all these years? Laws change, and so do family dynamics. Every estate plan should be revisited every 3-5 years to make sure it still functions and makes sense.
