Estate Planning: Debunking Some Myths and Considering Your Legacy

Original  article by R. Kurtz (Kurt) Holloway from our website:

A well thought-out estate plan is important. A plan offers you the opportunity to make decisions and do things that will give you peace of mind. Similarly, it will spare your family and loved ones unnecessary stress, confusion and other unpleasant experiences and help avoid arguments between family members. Further, your plan sends a message about how much you cared for people, your favorite charity or both. A plan is part of the legacy you leave.
