planning on your own can be complicated and costly. And the list is
endless... state taxes, bureaucracy, probate courts, unfair appraisals,
health care concerns, eligibility of heirs, life insurance, IRA's, 401K's,
annuities, burial or cremation costs, and intent regarding death-postponing
treatment to name a few. Not knowing your legal and financial rights often
ends up costing you more in the end.
Thoughts of estate planning often bring more questions than answers: Could
an heir be too young to inherit? Should the inheritance be given at a
certain age? Is the intended beneficiary in a shaky marriage with divorce as
a possibility? Are there children from a previous marriage? Should
inheritance be protected from potential creditors of the heir? Are there
taxes that can be avoided? Are you able to avoid the probate court rules,
delays, and costs?
Planning what happens to your estate when you're gone can seem frustrating
and intimidating without qualified help.
You may feel that you're too young to care about estate planning. Or,
perhaps the reminder of death makes you uncomfortable. You might be tempted
to put the whole thing off, assuming that it will just take care of itself.
In all cases, estate planning ends up saving your family lots of time,
heartache and money.
