Estate Planning Is Important For Many Reasons!
Such As - Incapacity Planning

Incapacity Planning

Your Estate Plan should protect you while you are alive but unable to manage your daily obligations. In the event that you become incapacitated - are you sure that there is a way for someone to care for your children, pets, finances, etc.? A little preplanning will go a long way to making sure there is someone (or more than one person) to step in and handle everything for you.
