66% of Americans do not have a written plan for their estate when they die. Are you one of them?
Did you know that if you die without a will, trust, or other legal plan and you have no surviving spouse, a probate court will determine what happens with your property and financial assets, who will care for your minor children, and even your pets? You may have been a faithful giver to God’s work all your life and want to leave something to support your church. Your children may have been raised with Christian beliefs and values and even attended Adventist schools. But these factors may have little or no impact at all on the court’s decision. The cost and timeframe of probating an estate are also considerable. Why let a court determine what happens with your property, who gets your money, or who will raise your children, when you can make those decisions yourself in advance? We would be glad to assist you with creating an estate plan that will help ensure that your wishes will be followed.
