As a society, we do not like to think about death and dying. At the same time, we know we have responsibilities.
Perhaps the most responsible thing we can do in this life is to plan for our own deaths. The time to make these plans is while we are still healthy enough to make wel thought out, informed decisions.
The first step in this planning is often the making of a Will. Beyond that, other considerations often include:
- Who will care for my child or children if I die?
- Will I be kept on life support if I fall ill beyond recovery? What say do I have in this decision?
- Who will manage my finances if I become incapacitated?
- What if my spouse and I both pass away at the same time?
It is important to discuss these and other matters with an attorney.
I’ve prepared a basic questionnaire to guide my clients in their planning. You can download it here: Estate Planning Information Form (pdf)
