The simple definition is that it is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of your estate. At Alex Kincaid Law, we recognize that estate planning is more than just planning for who gets your “stuff” and when.
It is not a process focused on death but on life, because you are actually planning for the living.
We view it as an act of love, which reflects and immortalizes your thoughts, hopes, and dreams you have for yourself and your family. Estate planning can and should be an end in itself.
When you decide to engage in estate planning, you have decided that you want to be the one who controls the destiny of your family not a judge, not the legislature, and not the IRS/tax man.
Those who engage in this process often experience a certain peace of mind for having taken care of everything they own and everyone they love.
