DuPage County Estate Planning Lawyer
We plan for parties. We plan for weddings. We plan for our vacations. We are obsessed with financial planning. Why don’t we plan for death? Why don’t we plan for long-term illness? We are all living longer, with more health issues than ever before, but we don’t plan for the possibility of incapacitation.
It is estimated that only about half of all Americans have a will. And what’s worse, fewer than half have any kind of plan for their future healthcare decisions. Many believe they do not need an estate plan if they have limited assets. But if you fail to have an effective and enforceable plan in place, you will not be the one making critical future decisions regarding your healthcare, assets and children. For the most part, these decisions will be left to the courts, and there is no guarantee that your wishes will be adhered to.
