Estate planning is rarely a quick, uncomplicated process. Rather, it is complex, taking into a variety of considerations including taxes, probate courts, healthcare, savings, life insurance, IRAs, 401Ks, annuities, funeral costs, eligibility of heirs, and more. This is specifically why it pays to have expert help as you plan what will happen to your estate when you’re gone.
