Did you know that (The Artist Formerly Known As) Prince died without a Will? His loved ones fought FOR YEARS in court.
Do you have people you love? Or whom love you? Give them the gift of having planned for your future (and theirs!) Draw up a Will. Set up Trusts. Name your Power of Attorney. Detail a Living Will. Put a few hours/days of time into meeting with a professional attorney to save your loved ones months/years of painful, expensive struggle in the face of unexpected tragedy.
Sound dramatic? Hear me out - Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley - all young, living in their prime (ok, maybe abusing it) - but all without an Estate Plan. Not a single Will among them. Pablo Picasso, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr - imagine the probate hearings that occurred when these men passed. Their loved ones were subjected to false claims and drawn out court proceedings.
I bet they thought they had time. Or they thought "my family gets along - I don't need a will".
• THE TIME IS NOW •
Call or email a local professional attorney - better yet, call a few of them. It's important to find someone familiar with your state's laws, whom you trust.
