Wills and Trusts

The word estate brings to mind images of a nice home filled with valuable items, all ready to be sold once the owners pass away. This leads some to believe that estate planning is only for the wealthy. The truth is, everyone with at least some possessions needs a basic plan in the form of a will. You may not need a complex trust set up to pass your assets on to the next generation, but you do need to have an outline of how you want you assets to be divided among your heirs. Not only does this give you peace of mind now, your loved ones will be glad that you took the time to do this and prevent disagreements from happening or from them carrying out your final wishes.
