What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is, simply put, the process of arranging the transfer of your assets after your death.
Why is Estate Planning important?
Without estate planning in place in the event of your death, your loved ones are left to manage your assets without guidance regarding your wishes. This process can be expensive, stressful and add to the already difficult grieving process.
Even if your assets are few, estate planning can make dealing with the death of a loved one much less about logistics and helps to allow families more time and space to grieve.
