Let's talk about Estate Planning first...
Estate planning is a legal and effective method of making arrangements to dispose and manage your estate at death through the use of wills, trusts or other devices. It is not just for the wealthy or those who are on the verge of death. With proper estate planning, you can decide how you want your assets to be owned, managed and preserved during your lifetime and to be disposed when you pass on.
Now, we talk about Will...
