While it may be uncomfortable to think about what might happen in the event of sudden illness or death, the truth is that your estate planning should begin as a young adult, and especially no later than when you start your family.
Many people wait to begin estate planning because it seems so complex: what is the difference between a will and a living will, a testamentary trust and a lifetime trust? What is probate? At J Eshman Law, we can help answer these questions and prepare all the documents you’ll need to make sure that no matter what happens, your loved ones are taken care of.
If you have young adult children who are off to college or starting their first job, you can and should still protect them with powers of attorney for financial and healthcare matters and wills. If you had estate planning documents from many years ago, it is time to update them.
