We understand that thinking about what will happen to your assets and children after your death is uncomfortable. However, once you draft your will, you’ll gain peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are protected—and that is not at all uncomfortable!
Stop procrastinating and start estate planning already! Before meeting with an estate planning attorney, make a list of your assets and debts, including bank accounts, investments, IRAs and 401(k)s, property and vehicles, valuable or prized possessions, the contents of safe deposit boxes, family heirlooms, and anything else you have specific desires for.
If you have an idea of how you’d like your assets to be distributed, start writing it down! The more thought you put into your will prior to meeting with an estate planning lawyer, the easier the process will be.
If you’re ready to get started, contact Caress Law, PC today. We offer a full array of estate planning services—including wills, trusts, and more—right here in Portland, OR.
