Planning during tough times
When you or a loved one is diagnosed with a serious illness, it makes sense to keep in close contact with a doctor. But what about your attorney?
While it may not be the most pressing issue, a little bit of planning can save you and your family a lot of headache. There are a number of things your attorney can help during terminal illness. And while optimism is always important, it doesn’t hurt to prepare for a transition.
Estate planning documents might be updated and changed. Beneficiary designations might be explored as appropriate. If real estate is involved, creating a life estate deed might be very useful. All of these things can save thousands of dollars and make the transition less stressful on the family.
They will be grateful.
