An estate plan can be created for many purposes, but one of them aims at looking after your family.
There are many ways to look at estate planning but maybe it just comes down to loving your family, according to Lifezette in “Estate Planning: A Love Note to Your Family.”
Estate planning is a way to let your family know that you love them.
As the article suggests, it is a love note to your family. You might not care too much about how your assets will be distributed when you are no longer around to worry about it, but it can make a big difference to your family.
Getting a proper estate plan can spare your family the costs and legal headaches of having to go through the probate process. It can even stop them from fighting over who gets which assets.
When you think about estate planning in those terms, then it should be obvious that everyone should get an estate plan. If you love your family, it is one of the best things that you can do for them.
