Estate Planning | Importance of Estate Planning
Elder Law | Most people would prefer to plan a vacation, as opposed to planning who will inherit their estates, if one shall pass. If you prefer to leave your family with less worry, it is very important to take that bold step towards estate planning. Without a concrete plan in place, there will be a long lasting impact on your loved ones. In this article, we are going to give reasons why estate planning is so important.
1. Estate planning ensures that your estate will go to the right people:
One of the main reasons that you need to have an estate plan, is to ensure that your properties goes to the right person. If you want to avoid future conflicts between family members, long after you are gone, it is crucial that you state who and how your estates will be managed. If you don’t, neither you nor your family will have control of what will happen to your estates. The main component of estate planning is deciding who will inherit your assets.
2. It will protect the beneficiaries from overpaying taxes:
With good estate planning strategies, you will help protect your heirs from paying thousands of dollars in taxes.
3. It can prevent family conflict:
Without a proper estate planning strategy, you will actually provide a platform for conflict between family members. Chances are, there is a sibling who will think that he or she deserves more than others. Another example would be that there is a family member that believes that they should be in charge of managing the affair of the estate. To prevent these types of conflicts, it is very important to do estate planning so that every heir knows what he/she is entitled to.
In conclusion, if you value your loved ones and want to secure their position, you need to ensure that you protect their interests by having an estate plan. Please call Mortellaro Law!
