Why Is Estate Planning Important?

There are many advantages to creating a plan for your estate in the event of incapacitation or death. While it can be somewhat daunting to think about the future of your property and assets, having a plan in place can be incredibly beneficial for your loved ones.

Some of the main benefits of creating an estate plan include:

  • Helping your beneficiaries avoid the often expensive and time-consuming probate process
  • Ensuring your children and other dependents will be properly cared for
  • Minimizing/avoiding certain tax penalties that may otherwise occur without an estate plan
  • Making charitable bequests, either during your lifetime, after death, or both
  • Naming an administrator of your estate who will ensure that your wishes are carried out
  • Making adjustments over time to reflect changing needs

A will alone does not ensure your estate will avoid the probate court process. Without a proper estate plan, the future of your assets and property could be left up to an impartial court. In the event that you become unexpectedly incapacitated, the court will appoint a person to manage your affair. Family members and other loved ones will have to petition the court in order to make changes. This can be an extensive, costly, and emotional process.
