After putting it off for years, my wife and I finally decided the time had come to call an attorney and prepare documents related to our estate. From the very first consultation, we knew that there was a lot of work to do. Fortunately, our lawyer was with us every step of the way. Before we were done, our wills were finalized, we set up trust funds for the kids, and had identified guardians who would take care of the kids if we died before they reached adulthood. We even prepared living wills, ensuring our wishes would be carried out if we were too ill to make our wishes known. If you have not organized your estate, start today. I'll share how we identified our needs, and what it took to put everything in place. I promise that once the job is done, you'll sleep better at night.
