When one thinks of estate planning, one usually thinks of older people, senior citizens, people who are near to retirement, or people who are wealthy. However adults of all ages should be seeing someone about planning their estate. It doesn’t matter what the size of your estate is. And estate planning is so important for those couples just starting out as parents.
As soon as you become a parent, you now have a responsibility to protect your child…even after your death. As a parent, you now have even more of a reason to do an estate plan. Everyone should be concerned about what happens to your assets when you are no longer around.
Did you know that in your estate plan, you can also name a guardian for your children in the event of your passing? It’s not just about distributing your assets. Although distribution of assets in an estate plan is so important, to keep your loved ones from having to deal with Probate Court, naming the person you trust most to become the guardian to your children when you are no longer here is much more important.
