If you are a parent, please have a will or trust done. This is the best gift you can give to your children. If something happens to you, you can ensure that no one, not a relative nor the courts will fight over who should care for them.
If you are an older adult with grown children, it is important to make sure that your “end of life” wishes are clearly spelled out and who is to carry them out. If you have do not want your estate to go through a two year, costly probate, create a trust now! You will be glad you did.
