Estate planning is a process that involves making plans for the distribution of your assets after your death. And if you have minor children, estate planning is essential in terms of protecting them and making sure the right people are in place to care for your children when you are not around. Estate planning does not need to be complicated and with the right guidance, can be a relatively easy process to navigate.
If you want to pass on money or property to someone else after you die, you need to make a will. A will also lets you name guardians for any minor children in case both parents die. You can also name an executor who will handle your estate after your death and distribute it according to your wishes.
Even if you do not have children or they are adults, estate planning is important because it helps ensure that your wishes are carried out according to what you consider most important. It also allows for flexibility and change over time—you may not know exactly how much money or property you'll have when you die, but having an estate plan in place allows you to make changes as necessary over time so that your wishes and intentions are clear and understood. If you die without a will, you leave to chance how your estate will be managed and who ultimately gets your assets or cares for your children. In most cases it will not be who you want!
