Wills are of no use if they are lost

Many California residents may have the best of intentions when it comes to creating their estate plans. They may want their wills and other documents to help their loved ones settle important matters after their passing. However, certain mistakes could make that more difficult for surviving family members.

Estate planning can help new parents protect their children

Many California residents feel like there is no greater joy than having children. For new parents, the feelings of excitement, happiness and love for their new child may be overwhelming. Because they undoubtedly want to do what they can to protect their child in various ways, they may want to look into estate planning.

Remember to include digital assets in wills

When trying to get certain affairs in order well ahead of time, it can be easy to overlook some details. For instance, while many California residents are focused on using their wills to distribute their physical assets after their passing, they may overlook the fact that they need to account for their digital assets as well. If digital assets are left unaddressed, issues could come about later.

Storing original wills and other estate documents safely

Adhering to state laws important when creating wills

Though most people understand that estate planning is important, they may not get started on their plans as early as they should. Many people begin working on their wills when they are nearing retirement, but really, any adult, young or old, could benefit from creating this document. Without one, surviving loved ones could be left at a loss as to how to handle certain affairs.

Wills can help express important end-of-life wishes

Finding the right way to express certain wishes in any situation can be difficult. However, depending on the circumstances, ensuring that others know those wishes may be vital. For instance, California residents can greatly benefit from making their wishes known regarding serious issues with their health and end-of-life wishes. Wills, along with other planning tools, can help them express those desires.

Wills, other planning documents can have numerous benefits

From their wills to their health care-related documents, individuals can reap many benefits for themselves and their families.

Digital assets are as important as physical assets in wills

Like most people, numerous California residents like living part of their lives online. They may take trips or spend time with family and want to post photos or anecdotes from the occasions on social media. They may also want to handle part of their professional and financial lives online by having access to bank accounts and other online portals. What they may not realize is that they are creating digital assets that likely need addressing in their wills.

Start the new year thinking about wills, other planning tools

As the new year quickly approaches, numerous individuals may believe that now is the time to get started on their wills and other aspects of estate planning.

Copies and storage may help keep wills and other documents safe
