Estate planning is for every husband, wife, mother, father, grandparent, business owner, professional, or anyone else who has someone they care about, are concerned about providing responsibly for their own well being and for the well being of those they love,and for anyone who seeks to make a difference in the lives of others after they're gone. Estate planning is not 'death planning'; it's 'life planning', and an essential and rewarding process for individuals and families who engage in it.
When done properly, estate planning requires that a highly trained individual lead you through one or more in-depth meetings to uncover your hopes, fears, and expectations for yourself and for those who are most important to you. This process almost always requires the preparation of several sophisticated legal documents, but those documents themselves are not 'estate planning.Planning is a process, represented by a complete strategy that is properly documented and maintained by a professional who has taken the time to get to know you, and who is committed to continuing to serve you.
Do you know what will happen to your pet if you die unexpectedly? Without good estate planning, your faithful friend could end up with an unwilling caregiver, or worse. Long-lived animals, such as some parrots and tortoises, are especially vulnerable, as they're more likely to outlive their owners. Expensive pets, like horses, can also become a financial burden to your heirs. Bequeathing a pet isn't a guarantee of care, but creating a pet trust is.
