Creating an estate plan is something many people put off for another day. This is a huge mistake – “another day,” isn’t always guaranteed! No matter what your reasons for waiting to create an estate plan have been up until this point, there is no time like the present to craft a plan that will protect the things and people that you love most.

We understand that it can be an emotional challenge planning for a future that you won’t be a part of, but if you want to provide for your spouse, children, and other family members that you’ll one day leave behind – rather than leaving them in the uncomfortable position of deciding what assets go to certain people – estate planning is an essential step.

What Is An Estate Plan, & Why Do I Need To Create One?

Estate planning involves creating legal documents that outline how your assets will be managed and distributed in the event of your incapacitation or death. A traditional estate plan is typically made up of a last will and testament, trust, power of attorney, a living will, and more. There is no “one-size-fits-all” formula for estate planning, so everyone’s plan will look different.

It’s important to note that creating only a will is not a fool-proof plan. Even if you have a will, it will not prevent your loved ones from having to go through the probate process before your assets can be distributed to the correct beneficiaries. Probate is a lengthy, stressful, and expensive process for your family to have to go through in the midst of an already difficult time. Creating a comprehensive estate plan can spare them of that burden and provide them with peace of mind that your last wishes will be honored.

Why Not Do It Myself?

Whether you’ve known for a long time that estate planning is something you need to do, or you only recently began to consider your options, you’ve likely stumbled upon what’s called DIY estate plans in your quest for answers. A “do-it-yourself” estate plan might hold the appeal of convenience and cost efficiency, but it can lead to a world of complication, costing you mentally, emotionally, and financially. DIY estate plans are highly accessible for a reason; they ARE intended as a “one-size-fits-all” solution. As previously discussed, that is not how estate planning works. Every person has unique situations when it comes to their finances, so what worked for one person won’t necessarily work for you too. DIY documents cannot get to know you and understand your goals the way that our Slatington estate planning attorney can. We can provide you clarity, while online DIY tools may only increase confusion (especially for your loved ones later on).

*We highly recommend Joshua Daly for Elder Law, wills, etc. This is something that people don’t know what can happen when your parents pass away or what to do. Josh helps prevent as much as you legally can the home and assets being taken by elder care home and/or govt.
What a great experience on a subject people don’t like to talk about but is so important. Josh makes this process pleasant. We are recommending Josh to all our friend and family and friends. Everyone should get their ducks in a row. I am glad we met Josh & finally did this!
Thank you Josh
