An Estate Plan is quite possibly the most vitally important component there is to planning for and protecting your family’s future interests. Put simply, an Estate Plan is a collection of documents that outline what to do in the event of your death or incapacity (when you are no longer capable of making decisions for yourself). It is crucial to have plans in place in case the unthinkable happens—even if you do not foresee problems with your health, accidents happen and illnesses can come on suddenly; you do not want to be in the position of trying to set your affairs in order when also struggling with sudden injury or illness. You also do not want your loved ones to be saddled with legal struggles and litigation on top of dealing with sudden tragedy, should you suddenly die or be left incapable of making those decisions yourself.
