Vacation planning is something that a lot of people take great care to handle – planning out every last detail. However, when a major life event happens, they give no thought to their estate plan. As estate planning attorneys, our team wants you to know how important it is to plan for life’s unexpected events — and even the expected ones. When you have a baby, get married, get divorced, or have any other major life occurrence, it is important to give a lot of thought to the legacy that you want to leave behind – should something happen.
When you plan a family vacation there is definitely some time and effort spent in organizing this anticipated fun-filled event. In the weeks prior to the vacation, the air is filled with excitement and happiness of what is expected to come. Every detail of the pre-planning is combed over and over to make sure your family’s experience is a safe one with no glitches or complications. This same tireless effort that goes into planning a vacation should also go into estate planning for your family.
The focal point of vacation planning and estate planning is the same – your family. Just like during a vacation where we want our families to be protected with no hassle and delay, we can also achieve this same type of protection for our families during our life and after we pass away. The way to achieve this protection for our families is to make estate planning a priority.
Estate planning is about getting the appropriate documents in place to coordinate who will make your decisions during incapacity or at death; and to whom your estate will be distributed. Proper estate planning will ensure that your family will not have to go through the costly and humiliating complications that arise when one doesn’t take the time to plan.
Although estate planning may not produce the excitement in the air as planning for a vacation, the effort should not be anything less than when planning for that vacation. Please call to schedule an appointment to see one of our experienced estate planning attorneys to discuss how we can eliminate the complications for your family if you become incapacitated or when you pass away.

We are happy to listen to your unique situation and help you create a plan that takes your circumstances into account. Contact our office today at (888) 222-1328 for help!
