How can estate planning protect a pet?

Many people in Washington have a cat, dog, bird or other animal companion. Having a pet can bring much joy to a person's life, as our pets provide us with companionship, comfort and unconditional love. With this in mind, as a person ages, they may have concerns about what will happen if their pet outlives them.

Planning for unexpected life events

No matter how well Kent area residents plan for the unexpected, they can still run into issues. Thinking about what would happen if a person unexpectedly dies or becomes incapacitated is not a pleasant topic of conversation. But, when a family does not plan ahead, it can turn into a serious matter.

What is the difference between a will and a living will?

Thinking about the future can be both an inspiring and fearful. One has hopes for the future, but at the same time, individuals are often faced with more serious thoughts about the future, such as what will happen after his or her passing. Drafting an estate plan might be an important step to take, but it is one that is vital. It can include necessary documents that spell out your wishes regarding who gets what and your end of life wishes.

Helping you draft a living will

Unfortunately, we cannot stop the inevitable. We all age; therefore, we must take steps to prepare for this reality. Even if we believe we have loved ones to care for us in our final years, this can be a costly experience. Thus, taking the time to consider how you want to be cared for and how it will be funded is not only helpful for you but your loved ones as well.
