Despite misconceptions, estate planning doesn’t just benefit the wealthy or elderly. An estate plan is comprised of several important legal documents that ensure your personal wishes are protected in the event of a medical emergency or your passing. A thorough estate plan includes your will and certain trust protections that guarantee your assets and property are accurately distributed to your loved ones.
A thorough estate plan allows you to dictate:
- Your beneficiaries
- How your assets and property should be distributed
- Who will act as a guardian to your minor children
- Who will care for any relatives with special needs
- Which person has the authority to handle your finances if you’re incapacitated
- Who can make medical care decisions for you if you’re incapacitated

The Necessity of a Customized Estate Plan
When drafting an estate plan, you don’t want to settle for “do it yourself” cookie cutter documents. Your estate plan needs to account for your unique family dynamics, medical history, and personal financial circumstances. This is the only way to guarantee that your legal documents cover the entirety of your estate. For example, your will can indicate which beneficiaries are inheriting your assets, but it can’t protect those assets from the probate process. You’re going to need thorough trust protections to protect your assets and loved ones from probate court.
