ESTATE PLANNING
 
WHAT IS IT?
 

Estate Planning is all about you and the future.  It is taking control now so that your wishes will be put into effect in the future when you are no longer able to communicate your desires.  Although no one likes to think about it, incapacity or death can strike at any time, and, once they do, it is too late to take control.  Estate Planning is nothing more than advance planning of what will happen to you, your spouse, your children, your money, your home, your personal possessions—in short, everything that defines you and your place on Earth—when the vicissitudes of life take control away from you.

Because we live in a society of laws, certain legal formalities have arisen over the centuries which enable you to take control today and put into operation a set of plans of your own choosing that will then legally control events when incapacity or death strike.  These "legal formalities" are generally expressed in documents such as wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advance directives.  If you are married or planning your wedding soon, other documents such as premarital and post-marital agreements can help complement your estate plan and guarantee that your wishes will be properly carried out.

For the most part, Estate Planning breaks down into the following two questions:

 What Will Happen If I Become Incapacitated?
  
 What Will Happen If I Die?
