Can’t I Create an Estate Plan Myself?

Many people attempt to draft these documents themselves. While some simple estate plans can be done this way, you risk using incorrect legal terminology. This can leave your true wishes and desires unclear and can have a disastrous effect on your estate. An unclear estate plan can lead to family disputes, and ultimately a potential will contest action. This legal process can quickly eat away at your estate, leaving little money for your intended heirs. It’s important to have a professional draft and review your estate planning documents to make sure that your wishes are clear.

Life Insurance and Estate Planning

Life insurance is a crucial part of estate planning because it provides financial support to loved ones when you're no longer here. By naming beneficiaries, you ensure that your family receives a tax-free payout, helping them cover expenses like debts, mortgages, education, daily living costs, as well as funeral expenses. This can ease the financial burden they may face after your passing. Additionally, life insurance can be used to offset estate taxes, preserving more of your assets for your heirs.
