Your estate plan is one of the most important tools you have for managing your affairs, protecting your assets, providing for your family, and ensuring your legacy. It is not easy to contemplate death, particularly one’s own death, but it is an inevitable fact that we will all pass from this life. Although we cannot control when we pass from this life, we can control is what happens after we die by preparing in advance.
