Estate Planning

Nobody likes to think about life or death.  However, the central reason it is so important for every individual to have a will and trust prepared is because if you die without a will and trust, all of your assets will be distributed under default rules to each of your relatives. In addition, your relatives will have to hire a probate attorney to represent your estate, which can be very expensive. Not only is it costly, many relatives fight over the assets that you have left behind. 

By preparing a will and trust, your relatives and specifically, your designated beneficiaries, will not have to go through probate court in order to inherit what you left for them. Instead, a trustee will handle everything, which helps avoid fights and costly litigation among the heirs.
