Helping You Decide And Honoring Your Wishes
As we age, we naturally think about end-of-life issues and this is when many of us consider a will. Creating an estate plan is important for every adult, regardless of age. At The Jonas Law Firm, we see firsthand how a thorough estate plan helps our clients decide on important issues and ensures that others honor their wishes. Estate planning puts you in control of your assets.
What Happens If You Don’t Have An Estate Plan?
Many people procrastinate on creating an estate plan because it can be unpleasant to think about or they do not realize how important a plan is. However, you should consider one for several reasons.
If you happen to pass away without a will, the state of North Carolina is in charge of distributing your property and making decisions about your estate. It will proceed without any knowledge of what you would have wanted.
Estate plans are not just to protect your assets after you pass away. You can legally state your wishes regarding your health care in the event that you cannot make decisions for yourself anymore by executing a Health Care Power of Attorney.
