Estate planning is important, no matter how small your estate may be. It allows you, while you are still living, to ensure that your property will go to the people you want, in the way you want and when you want. It permits you to save as much as possible on taxes, court costs and attorneys' fees, and it affords the comfort that your loved ones can mourn your loss without being simultaneously burdened with unnecessary red tape and financial confusion.

Many people avoid proper estate planning because they do not like thinking about death, but many do not realize the peace of mind that it can provide to you and your family.
