Estate Planning for Growing Families
Getting married, buying a home and having a baby are life events that often spark the estate planning conversation. "I have a spouse now....what do I need to protect my spouse if something happens to me?" "My husband and I just bought a house...we should probably have a will now, right?" "Our kids are 4 and 8, we know we are late to the game and this has been on our minds for almost a decade. We need to make sure we name a guardian if something happens to us. How quickly can you do that? I can't sleep at night anymore until that's done!" We hear this all the time and we are here to help.
