Why Estate Planning Should be Part of Your New Year’s Resolution

Why Estate Planning Should be Part of Your New Year’s Resolution

A new year is here, which means setting New Year Resolution goals such as going to the gym, eating healthier, saving more money, paying down debt, and overall taking more responsibility to what is important to us, including establishing an estate plan that protects you and your loved ones.

Many of you don’t currently have Estate Planning documents such as a Will or Trust OR have an out of date estate plan. While nobody wants to think about death or disability, establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Proper estate planning not only puts you in charge of your finances, it can also spare your loved ones of the expense, delay, and frustration associated with managing your affairs when you pass away or become disabled.

Bratton Scott draft wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents for young families, same-sex couples, families with disabled children, and individuals of all economic backgrounds from average New Jersey wage-earners to the very wealthy.

While some web sites provide boilerplate wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents, our lawyers do not use a cookie-cutter approach. We carefully craft these documents using language that, while being all-encompassing and meeting your needs, is still easy for you to understand. These are living, breathing, documents that embody your deepest dreams and wishes.
