While we don't like to think about the end of our life, estate planning is really important regardless of your age. It is important to have a plan for what happens after death regarding your assets, your children, and other details. The best thing you can do to help your family out is to plan ahead. Tony offers a very affordable estate planning package, which consists of the following for one flat fee:
- Will (with various language for trusts depending on your situation)
- Financial power of attorney (to allow someone else to control your financial accounts and other assets if you are alive but cannot do so on your own)
- Healthcare power of attorney (to allow someone else to make healthcare decisions for you if you are alive but cannot make the decisions yourself)
- Healthcare directive (directing doctors as to your wishes about things like life support, artificial nutrition, etc. as you near the end of your life)
My husband and I hired Tony to write our will. We are relatively young, but as business owners we wanted a plan in place in case something unexpected happened to one or both of us. He was very good at analyzing our situation and providing guidance as to what we should do. It was very affordable, too.
