Your life can change in the blink of an eye. A tragic accident or sudden onset of a serious disability at any age can alter your future — and the future of your family — without warning. Taking the time to plan ahead can save you and those you love from a lot of heartache.
It does not matter how young or old you are, nor how large or small your income or level of assets, estate planning can spare your family emotional turmoil and financial distress after you are gone. While you may think only of a will, trust and health care directive, another important aspect of setting up your estate plan is to identify ways to avoid the costly and time-consuming probate process.
