The infographic “Why people avoid estate planning”, created by Dana Law Firm in Arizona, has some absolutely astonishing numbers. Did you know 75% of Americans with children who are minors will leave guardianship decisions to the courts or that 20% of people without an estate plan say they do not have one because the process is too complicated? But what struck us was that 17% of those people say they don’t have one because they don’t have enough assets for an estate plan.
Well, we have news for you, everyone has an estate and it’s not just about money. Guardianship of your children, your pets and even your own health are all part of your “estate.” Do not leave important decisions to the court systems, put your wishes in writing today.
