What is an Estate?
Click here for a full presentation of ‘Understanding Estate Planning & Living Trusts’.
An estate is defined as sum total of a person’s real and personal property at a given time, usually at the time of the person’s death or incapacitation. It means that your house in San Diego, car, appliance, and your other personal trinkets, make up your estate. At first, this may not come into play, but when the time you die or got incapacitated comes, the question of who controls your estate will play a big part on the lives of everyone you hold dear.

Who Needs Estate Planning?
Estate planning is your only way to secure control over your properties even after death and/or incapacitation. For older people, it is important that you start the process of transferring your properties to your grown children and loved ones. For starting families, it is also as important, as you need to secure the welfare of your children, so no matter what happens to you, they will always be provided with. Even young adults will benefit with estate planning, as this will give their older parents a sense of security, while they still have no family of their own. So in a nutshell, everyone needs estate planning!
