This time of year is a chance for families to enjoy one another’s company and simply be thankful for one another. It is a time for food, fun, family, and maybe even a little football.
Whether you are planning on having a large family gathering or smaller get-together with friends, this is a great opportunity to talk with your loved ones about your potential estate planning. Talk with your loved ones about what would work best for you and your family. A conversation can be a great way to start thinking about your family’s estate planning.
Whether you need a will, a power of attorney, or a living will, a conversation with your loved ones can help you recognize what legal documents may need to help provide for your family in the event that you are no longer able to do so. Following your conversation, you can begin to think about addressing specific cares or concerns that your family may have. You can then take these concerns to your estate planning attorney to begin the process of developing or amending your estate plan.
Sometimes the hardest part to developing an estate plan is taking that first step. Use this opportunity with family and friends to move towards creating your estate plan. If you need help with your estate plan, which may include a will, power of attorney, or living will, contact our Tennessee estate planning attorneys at The Higgins Firm. Our Tennessee wills lawyers would be happy to answer any estate planning questions that you may have.
