“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.” — Robert Frost

Planning ahead is essential and having a last will and testament in place is a lifetime gift you can give yourself and your family.

Maybe you have been procrastinating about having your Will prepared? Or perhaps, your Will was prepared years ago and you would like to have it updated?

Your first step should then be to find a lawyer that specializes in estate planning.  By hiring a specialist, you will receive an accurate and more tailored approach to achieving your specific objectives resulting in an air-tight estate plan.

Your next step is to simply create a checklist to take inventory of your assets.  This list should include everything you own, such as vehicles, home, bank accounts, retirement accounts, investments, and personal belongings.   Once you have done so, the lawyer will then be able to help you to put together your entire estate plan which will include such details as appointing an executor, selecting your beneficiaries, and naming a guardian for any minor children.

No matter how straightforward or complicated your current situation may be, an estate planning lawyer can answer any questions to ensure that you have full understanding of the documents that you will be signing.  Having a solid estate plan in place will bring peace of mind to you and your loved ones.
