Preparing for Vacation
As Spring (slowly) approaches, many families are starting to finalize their vacation plans. March and April are big months for winter-weary families to get away.
However, as families prepare for their vacations, one item is typically never found on their “To Do” list – estate planning. If you plan to travel with your family, you should really have your affairs in order in the event the unthinkable happens. Whether it is death or disability, an estate plan will provide your heirs with the information they need to carry out your wishes. Otherwise, you are at the mercy of State law and, potentially, a Judge who has no idea who you are.
The core documents in an estate plan are a Last Will and Testament, Financial Power of Attorney and an Advance Medical Directive. While preparing an estate plan may seem like an onerous task, the attorneys at Compass Law Partners will walk you through the process and ensure your estate plan is completed in a timely manner.
