Estate Planning Frequently Asked Questions

Consider the following:

  • Are you concerned about the welfare of your loved ones in the event of your premature death?
  • Are you concerned that your life insurance proceeds would be squandered due to inexperience or immaturity, or subject to risk because your spouse remarries?
  • Are you concerned that the children from a current or previous marriage may not be cared for adequately if you’re not around?
  • Are you worried that your loved ones may be left financially devastated—unable to pay household and education bills—because of the extensive time it takes to settle your estate after your death?
  • Are you worried that your assets will be wasted on unnecessary and fruitless medical care because your wishes regarding life support are not honored or known?
  • Do you want your estate to avoid paying unnecessary taxes to the state and/or federal government because of your death?
