Jeff Fouts: “Estate planning attorney Jeff Fouts, here. There are many reasons people create an estate plan. Many reasons.
The first reason, of course, is they’re going to die. Let’s talk about some other reasons people do estate planning.
You’ve worked hard for many years, decades perhaps, and you’ve accumulated something. You want the stuff that you have to go to the people you want in the quickest fashion, handled by the people that you trust, in the most fee-efficient, cost-efficient, tax-efficient manner.
Not only that, but you want to make darn sure there’s the least amount of disagreements and squabbles.
But estate plans don’t simply work well, and flow nicely, simply because you hope they will. They must be well designed. I would highly recommend that you get your estate plan reviewed, so that it will actually do what you hope it will do. Thank you. “
