- Select your attorneys.
- Set a date for completion.
- Visit your plan periodically to see if there are changes that affect it.
A feeling of satisfaction is enjoyed once a family has accomplished getting
an estate plan in place. What are your wishes related to your family,
business and community? These are often referred to as your objectives.
Questions to consider may include:
- Do you wish to have your farm continued into the next generation?
- What do you understand your personal finances to be for the rest of your lifetime?
- Do you wish to distribute property equally to your children or are there
reasons for one child to receive a larger share?
- Do you have children with special needs or concerns?
- Do you have desires to contribute to your favored charities?
Of course, there is the common objective of minimizing estate settlement
costs and being sure there are funds to provide for you and to pay those
estate costs. Lots of family discussion may be needed to arrive at common
answers to the above list of questions. The discussion can be initiated
by you; if you desire, your estate planning attorneys may be of assistance.
Family input is certainly good; however, the decision makers ultimately
are Mom and Dad.
