It is always easy to put off making a proper estate plan for another day. No one likes to think of death or other negative circumstances. You are never too young to have a comprehensive estate plan that will protect you and your family in case something unexpected occurs.
One of the most commonly known aspects of an estate plan is having a trust or living will set in place. These documents protect your family after your death. Without them, your family can be forced to go through the challenging process of probate court in order to claim any inheritance that you may leave.
Additionally, it is imperative that you create a health care directive that reflects your wishes in the event that you are unable to make decisions regarding your well-being. Similarly, having a power of attorney document allows you empower an agent to represent your interests if you are unable.
