Having a will helps ensure that your family can honor your wishes after you die. As life circumstances change, however, you should review and update your will periodically.
Estate planning is often a multi-faceted process that may include creating a living will, deciding what happens to personal property or even providing financial assistance to loved ones.
When you or a loved one is coping with an urgent medical situation, having a plan in place for care can help to avoid unnecessary stress and uncertainty in an already difficult situation.
In times of uncertainty, you may hear from others that you need certain estate planning documents.
