You might be prepared to face any potential challenge in Columbus, except the thought of your own mortality. It is for this reason that you may have put off your estate planning. Several of those that come to see us here at The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt Inc. think that estate planning only involves them preparing a will or trust instrument to deal with their assets upon their deaths. Like them, you may be surprised to learn that another major component of estate planning is preparing for those times when you may (for whatever reason) simply need the added assistance of others.
There are many reasons for a divorce, and every couple has a unique experience during the process of divorce. Sometimes couples end their marriage due to problems that arose unexpectedly, such as one spouse having an affair or a domestic violence incident. On the other hand, there are more chronic problems that a couple may have been struggling with for months or even years, such as incompatibility. Regardless of the reason, it is pivotal to handle your divorce with care.
Many people in Ohio find it difficult to talk about making a will or a trust in part because this means facing the reality that they will someday die. While a good estate plan can benefit anyone, it has particular benefits for remarried couples, especially when one or both spouses brings children into the marriage from their prior marriages or relationships.
We’re all going to die some day, so that’s why it’s important to live your life the way you want to, explore the world and accomplish goals. Among those goals should be creating an estate plan. With it, you have an opportunity to protect your estate and hand down your assets to beneficiaries.
