What Is Estate Planning, And Why Is It So Important?
Estate planning is the process of determining what will happen to your hard-earned assets, both during your lifetime and after your death. It’s more than just making a simple will; it is taking the time to ask and answer extensive questions about various scenarios and then getting the right documents and protections in place to address those scenarios.
For example, who will raise your minor children if you pass away unexpectedly? What if you become incapacitated – who will make medical decisions on your behalf, and what should those decisions be? Documents like trusts, powers of attorney, advance directives, guardianship designations, and others can ensure that all of your wishes are honored, no matter what the future holds.
If you fail to plan ahead, you could leave your family in a difficult position – either not knowing what your wishes were or not being able to carry out those wishes. For example, if you pass away with a will, but no complete estate plan, your estate will likely still have to go through probate. Probate is a confusing, expensive California court process that may have to occur before your family can inherit your assets, including your house, but it can take months or even years to finish. It’s not something you want to burden your family with.
If you pass away without a will or any other estate planning documents, California laws will determine what happens to your possessions, which may not be what you intended. If you suffer a medical emergency, and don’t have an estate plan in place, your family may argue and even go to court over what should happen to you (which again, is not a burden you want to leave your family with). If you have to enter a nursing home, and don’t have an estate plan, you may lose your life savings to cover the costs of care or become a financial burden on your family.
An estate plan guarantees that everything will go smoothly despite whatever bumps in the road lie ahead. Your family won’t have to worry about anything but moving forward, and the money you have worked hard to leave them will be preserved!
