Your Estate And Your Wishes
Having a proper estate plan in place gives you the opportunity to make your wishes known, and to ensure that those who depend on you have the resources they need to continue. Its crucial that you have an up-to-date will, power of attorney, advance directives to doctors, an executor, specified funeral wishes, selected a guardian for children or dependents and have liquid assets to pay taxes and to settle your estate.
Revising Your Estate Plan
Naturally, there are life events that require you to reconsider your estate plan and make changes to it accordingly. Events like this could be marriage, divorce, having a child, selling or starting a business and more.
An effective estate plan that is prepared well in advance should work to limit the tax liabilities your heirs will encounter when settling your estate. The Wright Brothers believe in leaving as much of your assets as possible to your heirs, and not the government.
There are some circumstances that require special considerations when preparing an estate plan. These might be family-owned businesses, disabled dependents, or families that require care for elderly members.
