When is it Time to Call an Estate Planning Law Firm?
Many people put off estate planning for various reasons. They may not want to have difficult conversations when they think that they have more time. The truth is that you never know when you will run out of time to draft an estate plan, and it can be too late.
The best time to call an estate planning law firm is now. You could need your estate plan at a moment’s notice. Although a will is an important part of an estate plan, there are many more crucial aspects. For example, you would need a power of attorney to allow someone to make medical and financial decisions on your behalf. If you wait until it is too late, you may not have the capacity to sign binding legal documents. Once you become incapacitated cognitively, you lose the ability to enter into any type of agreement.
In addition, beginning an estate plan now gives your family peace of mind to know that they can handle whatever happens in the future. You also know that you are making your family’s life easier when the time comes. The arrangements are in place that could both allow your family to make effective decisions and provide for an orderly transfer of your assets. You can also rest assured knowing that you have the documents in place to take care of your family and cement your legacy. This is not a call that you should delay because there can be significant consequences.
