Estate planning is somewhat unique within the law in that, unlike other legal matters and disputes, estate planning it is not something that is ever truly “resolved.” On the contrary, for your estate plan to be successful it needs to be an ongoing venture that is continuously reviewed and revised to reflect your changing needs and wishes. As a young, single, adult just starting your career, your estate planning needs may be handled with nothing more than a Last Will and Testament that ensures you do not leave behind an intestate estate. When you marry or become a parent for the first time, however, you should take the time to review and revise your estate plan to ensure that your spouse and/or child are protected and provided for within your plan. You may also wish to incorporate new components into your plan, such as incapacity planning as well as tax and probate avoidance. Hopefully, the value of your estate will grow along with your family, prompting the need to include asset protection strategies into your plan as well. Once you have a well-established family and career, you should begin to focus more on the future by creating a retirement planning component within your estate plan to ensure that your retirement plans work in harmony with your estate plan. As you get closer to actually retiring you will also want to discuss the need for Medicaid planning to cover the high cost of long-term care as well as funeral planning with your estate planning attorney.
