Tips | Estate Attorney in Raleigh NC
Being upfront and honest about your estate plan and why you chose to do the things you’ve done might be easier for your loved ones in the long run. It may cut out confusion, frustration or challenges in the future. And, as we mentioned above, telling loved ones about the estate plan doesn’t have to include your net worth or what beneficiaries will be receiving.
If you do choose to be open and forthcoming with your loved ones about your estate plan, you could discuss net worth and what you’ll be leaving them in the event of your death. Simply, it’s a matter of what you’re most comfortable with and what your family will be comfortable with, as well.
Making the right decision for yourself and your family might be difficult, but in the end, it might be best to at least make your beneficiaries and representatives aware of their roles in your estate plan so they’ll be prepared for what might come. In addition, it might be a great idea to at least let family and close loved ones know where you’ve stored your estate planning documents, who your estate planning attorney is and how to contact their office.
