Estate planning is key to ensuring you know what happens to your assets after you pass away. It also helps you take care of your family and other loved ones even when you cannot be there to help them and, according to Kiplinger’s, ensures you get a say in how your assets are distributed. Without a valid will or estate plan, disputes, and litigation are more than likely to occur over your assets.
