MARIN ESTATE PLANNING LAWYER
Do you want to protect you, your family, and your assets in the event of your untimely incapacity or death? If you already have an estate plan, congratulations! If you do not have an estate plan, pretend for a moment that you were either involved in a really bad accident (car accident, slip and fall, etc) or suffered from Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease and were rendered totally incapacitated. Pretend further that you were incapacitated for weeks, months or even years. Would you, your family, and your assets be protected? Would you and your family have quick access to liquid assets? Or would you and your family be faced with financial and medical uncertainty? Pretend further that you died from this bad accident or disease. Would your family and your assets be adequately protected? Would your final wishes be honored by having your assets go to specific individuals of your choosing?
Simply put, incapacity cases are dramatically on the rise because people are living longer due to advances in medical technology.
So doesn’t it make sense to have an estate plan in place to address the ever increasing odds of you becoming incapacitated? And when it comes to death, we all know that it is certain. So clearly it makes total sense to plan for an event that is certain to happen, right? YES! However, far too many people in California do not have an estate plan. According to an article by Forbes.com dated April 9, 2014, 51% of Americans age 55 to 64 don’t have wills. Worse, 62% of those age 45 to 54 — and 67% of women that age — haven’t drafted wills. This data reveals that too many individuals and their families are unprotected in the event of their incapacity or death.
