There is much more to estate planning than most people think. And estate planning is not only for the rich and famous. Often times, it is most beneficial for people with the typical house, car, and savings. Whether you are rich or poor, single or married, widowed or divorced, or whatever circumstance you find yourself in, choosing to draft an estate plan now is one of the most important and loving gifts that you can give to those who are important to you.
There are several different types of estate plans, and learning what plan is right for you depends on your personal needs and goals. It does not hurt to do your own research online or at the library, but it is invaluable to seek the professional advice of an estate planning attorney who can answer those specific questions you have that those online or print resources can't answer. Moreover, a professional estate planner can often raise issues you never thought of and don't want to leave out of your estate plan.
