Valentine’s Day is often thought of as a day of love shared between couples. This holiday can, however, also be viewed as a day for giving thanks and showing your family how much you love them. Many people today have not taken the time to leave clear instructions for their estates should something happen to them. What better way to show love than to leave clear, written instructions for your executor so that your estate goes directly to your loved ones without probate or unnecessary legal proceedings? Planning your estate beforehand is part of the equation, the other part is having a last will and testament in place to provide clarity on how your estate is to be divided.
Give The Gift Of Estate Planning
Although many might think of rings, bracelets and other jewelry as great Valentine’s day gifts, why not give the gift of your estate? Taking the time to perform proper and thorough estate planning can become an excellent gift for your loved ones at a time when they will likely need it most. Consider, for a moment, if you were to pass away or become incapacitated. How would your family pay bills? Buy groceries? Pay the mortgage? These are all important issues that could come to light if something were to happen to you and could put your family under tremendous financial strain. Estate planning ahead of time is a simple, convenient and affordable solution that can keep needed cash in your family’s pockets while avoiding the time, expense and headaches of probate court or other estate settlement procedures.
Why Buy Estate Planning For Valentine’s Day?
The answer to this question is simple: Why not? The sooner you plan your estate with a licensed planner or attorney, the sooner you may sleep better at night. Planning your estate can not only ease the burden on your family, but may also provide other benefits as well. These may include decreased costs and time, less hassle and getting cash to you faster when you may need it most. The best way to express love to your family may be making sure they are taken care of if something were to happen to you. What better day to do so than Valentine’s Day?

The Best Valentine’s Day Gift
Valentine’s Day is a heavily celebrated holiday and a favorite among couples. This day of love brings couples together in attempts to express their love and devotion to one another. Jewelry such as necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings are quite popular choices for gift givers. For those thinking about their long-term futures together, however, a very different type of gift may be best. This Valentine’s Day, consider giving the gift of financial security, independence and well being. Consider planning your estate now and providing those you love with the comfort of knowing they will be taken care of should you pass away or become disabled.
Unfortunately, many people neglect to plan their estates until it is too late. An unexpected death, an injury or an incapacitation can all render your estate effectively worthless, until it is thoroughly sorted out in probate court. Probate, however, is not something you want to be involved in or have to wait on. These proceedings can take not only months, but can go on for years. During this time, the estate is basically undivided and none of the heirs can take advantage of any of its assets. Probate can not only take significant time , but it can also become extremely expensive and frustrating. Make the lives of your loved ones easier and take the time to plan your estate today-you’ll be glad you did.
Why Plan Your Estate For Valentine’s Day?
Estate planning may not be the most exciting thing for most people. Average, everyday people have no desire to think about their demise or disability. Although such thoughts may be uncomfortable, the discomfort felt examining them may pale in comparison to thoughts of an unplanned estate. You have worked hard your entire life to build assets, buy a home and save for retirement. More than likely, you would want someone you love, such as a partner, spouse, child or other family member, to be entitled to those assets should you pass away. Consider, for a moment, if your assets spend several years tied up in a court of law. This could not only prevent your loved ones from accessing those assets, but it may also deplete them along the way as expenses mount.
Valentine’s Day is as good a day as any to plan your estate and take care of your heirs. The key is not which day you do it on, however, but rather just getting it done. Explore your estate planning options today to learn more about its importance. Speak with an experienced and expert estate planning attorney to learn what you need to know and have any questions you may have answered. Consulting with an expert will not only make the process make sense, but may even make it more enjoyable as well. Give us a call today or visit us online at Ladimer law to get started now.
