Estate planning encompasses the growth, conservation and transfer of an individual’s wealth through the creation and maintenance of an “estate plan.” The purpose of estate planning is to develop a strategy that will maintain te financial security of individuals through their lifetime and facilitate the intended transfer of their property and assets at death, while taking into consideration the unique circumstances of the family and potential costs of different methods.
We often hear:
“I’m too young to do estate planning.”
“All my property is tilted in joint tenancy with my spouse, so I don’t need a will.”
“Estate planning is only for the super-rich.”
“Estate planning is too complicated and expensive.”
“Doesn’t the government provide for that?”
“We did our wills right after we got married 30 years ago and see no need for further planning.”
