Have you ever received a call you weren’t ready for? Sudden deaths, accidents, or a pandemic can leave you feeling helpless. You may ask yourself questions like, “What now? How will I deal with this? Will everything be ok?” The reality is that if you or your loved one did not prepare for the death of a family member, you might not be. When we are not proactive about estate planning, the people we love suffer.
Consequences of putting off estate planning:
- Paying probate costs
- Unnecessary attorney’s fees
- Family members fighting for their rights to your property and funds
- Loss of inheritance to creditors
- Estranged family receiving the inheritance
- Unintended beneficiaries
