Reasons Why You Need an Estate Plan

Our Santa Clarita Estate Planning Lawyer Explains

There are many reasons that a person may not have already put an estate plan in place. They may be young and healthy and think that it is not needed yet. They may not wish to have the necessary conversations, because it is unpleasant or uncomfortable to think about. Or, they may simply think it is unnecessary, or more trouble than it is worth. It has been our experience, however, that no one who took the time to build a solid estate plan went on to regret it.

At O’Hare Law Office, our estate planning attorney has years of experience and is committed to helping people understand their available options when it comes to planning for their assets and beneficiaries.

Why Do I Need An Estate Plan?

The main reason why people create an estate plan are for protecting the beneficiaries, both minor and adult. If there are minor beneficiaries, they must be appointed a guardian or conservator so their needs and finances are cared for until they become legal adults. Adult beneficiaries are to be protected from bad decisions, outside influences, divorcing spouses, and creditor issues.

Other reasons why estate planning is necessary:

  1. Avoiding or minimizing the time in probate court
  2. Reducing estate taxes
  3. Easing the burden of stress on family members and loved ones

Not only are you ensuring that your assets are distributed properly and your wishes are carried out, but you are also ensuring that your family has one less thing to worry about. These estate plans mean that instead of having to guess at what you would want or having to spend a great deal of time or money in probate court, they are able to focus on grieving, healing, and celebrating the life of their loved one.
