Though thinking about the possibility of incapacitation or death is never pleasant, the truth is that fatal accidents or incidents may occur at any time. If you are suddenly involved in a tragic event, you want to make sure that your family and other loved ones are taken care of and that you know to whom your property and assets will be distributed. If you do not have an estate plan, you risk your property going to an unintended person or party while certain important loved ones receive nothing. It is never too early to discuss an estate plan, and every adult should contact an experienced St. Charles estate planning attorney to establish an estate plan.
