For most Michigan residents, thinking about the future often means thinking about what you might be doing in a year. What trips you might go on, what events you might go to and who you might see. One does not often enjoy thinking too far in the future because that often requires them to think about potential negative or unfortunate events. While no one likes to think about their death or incapacitation, the truth it that this is not just the concern of the elderly.
Estate planning is not just for the sick and elderly. No natter your age or the state of your health, it is never too soon to think about what would happen at the time of your death.
A will can serve many purposes, and one of these is to avoid probate. A carefully drafted will could help an individual’s heirs and beneficiaries avoid the probate process because all property distribution was addressed in the document. This would also mean that other end-of-life planning occurred, such as executing a trust and other estate planning documents.
