Do you have a current will? If so, great! But there are times when having a will may not be enough, or you may need a will that is more specific to your situation.
Do any of these apply to you?
- You own a business, but haven’t made provisions for the continued operation of the business if you should die or become disabled.
- You haven’t made specific provisions for your minor children in your will
- You have a child with a disability but only have a “typical” will.
- You have sole responsibility of care for an older adult and have not made provisions for that person’s care should something happen to you.
- You are in a same-sex relationship and have not addressed that in your will or powers of attorney.
- You don’t have a health care power of attorney and want to make your specific wishes known.
- You anticipate trouble from your beneficiaries and want to prevent it as much as you possibly can.
- You have one or more animals and you want to make specific provisions for them.
- You want to designate someone to conduct “day-to-day” personal business for you in the event you should become disabled.
- You want to designate someone to serve as your guardian in case it should ever become necessary.
Remember, even if you have a will you should review it yearly to be certain that it still meets your needs. We recommend the beginning of the year as a good time for review. You can also ask for a consultation with an attorney to review your estate plan and be certain that it is still the best one for you.
