It’s easy to delay answering uncomfortable questions such as, “What happens to my loved ones when I die?” So, it’s no surprise that roughly half of Americans don’t have a will, and even fewer have an estate plan. That’s not to say they don’t think about it: clients usually have specific ideas about what should be done when they pass away, they just don’t put it in writing.
When it comes to real estate, investments, personal possessions, or even guardians for children, no one, especially the grieving, wants there to be lingering uncertainty. There are multiple methods to dictate how a personal estate should be distributed, such as a will or a living trust. However, determining which specific course of action best suits your goals and desires can be difficult and confusing.
