It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?” — Winnie the Pooh
New Parents + Families: How to Protect your Family.
Is it necessary?
If you have children, Estate Planning is necessary — regardless of how much you make, what you own, or how “big” your estate is. Simply put, a Will designates who will care for your children should anything happen to you and your spouse. By planning today, you can avoid the court potentially deciding who should raise your little (or not so little!) ones. Beyond appointing a guardian, Estate Planning ensures that your affairs are handled by a trusted person, that any money or possessions are preserved for your children and spent in keeping with your wishes.
Can we just do a form online?
Yes, technically you could just fill out a form online. But, then you are just filling out form — you will not know, until it is too late, whether the form was completed properly or if it accounted for the specifics of your own family. Don’t get us wrong, “DIY” is great … and there are lots of tasks in life where DIY makes sense … but when it comes to safeguarding your kids, we just don’t think DIY legal work is wise. An attorney, whether it is us or someone else, is trained to listen to you and spot issues that you may not even be aware of. The benefit of taking the time to work with a professional who is versed in helping parents plan ahead far outweighs the convenience of using a one-size-fits-all online form.
