Putting together an estate plan might not seem very important at first thought. Some people even have the “if I’m dead, I won’t care” mentality. While you might not care about what happens to the stuff you leave behind, you should care about how it affects others. In the end, do you want to be remembered for all the good things you did or for the mess you left behind?
When you’re convinced, it’s time to consider preparing a variety of documents. To start, a will is a good idea. It will outline things like who gets all your stuff and money, and who will take care of your pets and minor children if you pass.
