It never fails to amaze me how a person can have fame, celebrity and a boatload of money and, yet, fail to have even a remotely adequate estate plan. Here's an article I came across that does a nice job of explaining why Whitney Houston's failure to have a well thought out and drafted estate plan left such a mess for her family and loved ones to deal with. Take a look.
Okay, so perhaps your estate is not going to be worth millions like Whitney's, but that certainly doesn't mean you shouldn't get your own estate planning affairs in order. If you've been procrastinating, stop. Estate planning doesn't have to be scary, difficult or expensive. At American Wills & Estates we've been assisting clients in Pittsburgh and throughout Western Pennsylvania with all of their estate planning needs for over 25 years. We can typically prepare a husband and wife estate plan consisting of 2 Last Will and Testaments, 2 Durable Powers of Attorney and 2 Living Wills for as little as $350 dollars.
