Your estate plan accomplishes two important goals. It protects you and your family during your lifetime in the event of incapacity. It also makes certain that your wishes are fully implemented on your death. Sadly, the reality is that the Covid-19 pandemic increases the chances of the occurrence of these events for everyone.
Creating an estate plan with the assistance of an experienced estate planning attorney is the only way to make certain that you have the necessary protection during your life and that your assets and property will be distributed as you wish when you pass away. You should never attempt to create an estate plan using a form or a do-it-yourself (DIY) service. Even a simple mistake in a DIY estate plan can mean that your documents are not legally valid or that they do not accomplish your wishes.
