When Should You Start to Consider Estate Planning?

It’s never too early to start thinking about estate planning. However, some monumental life events can help people acknowledge the importance of planning for the future. The Davidson Law Group understands that everyone’s circumstances are different, and we’re here to provide clarity and assistance. In today’s blog, our attorneys answer the question: When Should I Start to Consider Estate Planning?

Getting Married

Marriage is often an indicator that you should begin the estate planning process. While it is a happy milestone, marriage comes with many responsibilities. You will provide for your spouse during your life together, and you will also provide for your spouse after you pass. Our estate planning attorneys will assist you in ensuring that your loved one is provided for and that your assets are utilized according to your instructions.

Getting a Divorce

A divorce is never pleasant to go through, but it is a fact of life. Proper planning can help you avoid future problems once you finalize your divorce. If you have not started designing your estate plan, it’s not too late. At the Davidson Law Group, our estate planning attorneys will help make sure your assets go to who you want, in the way you want. We will help you outline your wishes in a will, create trusts, or address any other concerns you may have.        

Becoming a Parent

Becoming a parent is a life-changing event. A lot of people discover the significance of having an estate plan when they have their first child. Whether you have one or multiple children, you can see the value of having a plan to provide for them when you pass. Our estate planning attorneys will work with you to ensure your assets are used to support your children’s healthcare, education, and other needs.  

Experiencing Health Issues

If you are experiencing changes in health, such as a disability or illness, it is best to begin your plan right away. Our estate planning attorneys can help you expand your assets to cover your treatment costs and ensure your loved ones will be financially sustained after you pass. Also, if you or a loved one is experiencing long-term care, we can help you become qualified for Medicaid and walk you through the application process.
