Many people are under the mistaken impression that estate planning is nothing more than a way to distribute assets after death and minimize taxes. While this is certainly one aspect of estate planning, a well-designed plan can help you accomplish much more.
Another misconception about estate planning is that it is only for certain types of families, the “rich and famous.” But the fact is every family can benefit from having a plan of its own… a plan created by an attorney who focuses on this specialized area of the law.
In essence, estate planning is about planning for every stage of life, not just what happens after you pass away. An estate plan can help ensure that your children will be well cared for if something happens to you or your spouse, protect your assets against the cost of long-term care, and give you control over medical and financial decisions made on your behalf if you become incapacitated. And of course, it allows you to control who will receive your property in the manner you choose instead of the manner chosen by the government.
