Regardless of your age, net worth, or the size of your family, having an estate plan is important to you and your family’s future. An estate plan details what will happen to your property and assets when you pass and can help ease the burden placed on your loved ones once you are gone. At Taege Law Offices, our we will work with you and incorporate your unique financial history and person preferences in creating a plan that you can feel good about.
The Importance of an Estate Plan
You will have no say in how your estate is settled without an estate plan. Instead, Illinois law will determine your heirs and their respective interest in your assets. Settling your estate after you pass without an estate plan can can be a cumbersome and emotional process with the burden falling on your surviving loved ones.
Obtaining an estate plan will ensure that those you care about are properly taken care of after you pass. Your estate plan can address who will look after any minor children you have, how money will be allocated to a child or loved one with special needs, and more.
