Given all of the complexity of life, it is no wonder that all of assets, property, items, valuables, heirlooms and other things that we collect in our years on this planet create a complicated web. The items we have are just one side of the estate plan equation. There are also the people that we know, the people that we love, and the family members that we cherish on the other side. These relationships and these items, together, make up the basis for how we decide to distribute our property when it is our time to pass on to the next life.
Estate planning is a very important issue, but that doesn't mean it is an easy or simple task. A lot goes into planning your estate, and there a lot of contingencies that you have to plan for and plenty of provisions that you need to include to ensure that your will, your trusts, and your estate plan as a whole are proper, compliant and adequately reflect your last wishes.
