When partners create a life together, they often consider the house they will make a home, the children they will have, where their careers will take them, the places they will travel to and what retirement will look like together. Looking towards the future is easy when you are considering the happy and enjoyable events in life. It is less appealing when spouses need to think about their eventual death or if their health depreciates. Nonetheless, it is an imperative conversation when creating an estate plan.

Plan for the future
It is not easy to talk about death, even if it is inevitable. Likewise, it is equally challenging to discuss what would occur if you were deemed incapacitated and unable to make health or financial decisions for yourself.
You are not alone in this situation. As such, legal professionals are prepared to guide individuals through the process, helping them understand various situations and options.
It is important that you approach the estate planning process well informed. This not only aids in the creation of a will, trust, power of attorney and other documents, but it also signals when you should update a current estate plan.
