Look beyond a will if you care about your loved ones.
Many people think the purpose of estate planning is limited to ensuring that your assets and possessions are passed on to the people and parties you want to have them after you die, with as little delay and costs as possible. However good estate planning goes beyond this. It plans for adequately addressing many of the obligations you undertake if you are no longer able to perform your responsibilities due to death or incapacity.
Think about all the areas in your life that may need someone to step in and take your place in your absence. Who do you take care of, provide for, guide or mentor?
