The death of a loved one can be stressful, even emotionally devastating. When faced with such a loss, many of us would like to hide away and privately process the grief, yet there is often much to be done.
No one likes to ponder their own demise, but a worse scenario is thinking about all of the things that could go wrong with the distribution of your assets should you fail to make your wishes clear. Too often, the wrong family members step in and try to claim "close" relationships and rights to an inheritance that you might have never dreamed to come into play.
Preserving your wealth and keeping money in your family should be part of your estate planning strategy. Fortunately, there are several ways you can create those kinds of results. That can help you provide a financial legacy for your children and other family members, along with offering you a lot of peace of mind.
