Estate planning can have a bad reputation. Many do not want to think about the future, let alone what will happen to their assets and property after they have passed. However, having a solid plan in place can do much more than provide a roadmap for your final wishes and may be necessary to prevent additional stress, cost, and a lengthy court battle for your surviving loved ones after you have passed.

Every estate plan should include a few necessary documents to help ensure that your wishes are carried out. These include a thorough will and trust which directs your executor or successor trustee on how to manage your estate after you have passed; a durable power of attorney that nominates an agent to manage your finances if you are incapacitated; a medical power of attorney that directs your agent on how to make medical decisions on your behalf; and a living will which allows you to choose not to prolong your life if you have a terminal condition.
