Planning for your future by creating an estate plan that protects your financial assets from the estate tax is one of the most important things you can do for your children and beneficiaries.

People often worry about both the cost and process of drafting a will or an estate plan. It can be more costly if you don’t put your plan onto paper or if you try to do it yourself and miss an important consideration.
I have an older estate plan, should I have it reviewed?
Everyone should have his or her estate plan reviewed after major life events – marriage, divorce, children now out of the home, new grandchildren, etc. For instance, a will that designates a guardian and conservator for minor children who are now grown and off to college should be updated. Another common occurrence is when a beneficiary of your will has become a spendthrift. A limited trust may be necessary to insure money is not wasted.
