St. Louis and Manchester MO lawyers offer useful tips for young couples, citing estate planning as a necessity.
Manchester, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2013 -- “I’m an estate planning attorney in my thirties. Many of my friends and family are getting married and having children. They often ignore the subject of estate planning. That’s a big mistake. Estate planning isn’t just about asset protection. It’s also about making sure that you get to decide what happens with your health, your family, and even your pets,” Quinn related.
Why is estate planning in St. Louis necessary? A variety of reasons abound.
Without St. Louis estate planning, spouses could be divested of their rightful inheritances – wills and legal documents codify what might otherwise be left implicit and vulnerable.
Children, in the absence of estate planning, likewise could be stripped of what is due to them should one or both parents pass without having planned their estates. Resources that they may need for their educations and future lives may be gone… forever.
Arduous and costly court battles over details of the unplanned estates could be a reality. From the discovery process to the litigation, such courtroom machinations very well could open old wounds and exacerbate the pain caused by new ones.
Family members could fight – simmering tensions could boil over. Even pets could find themselves homeless.
Guardianships. Living wills. Powers of attorney. These are not luxuries. These are plans to ensure that a family’s assets are preserved even after the breadwinners have passed on from this mortal coil.
St. Louis area residents should not delay – they should consult Quinn and Banton for estate planning in St. Louis and surrounding areas.
