Asked about estate planning, the vast majority of Americans respond that their number one estate planning goal is to avoid probate. While this is a valid and reasonable answer, is it a sad commentary? To plan with purpose, to leave a lasting legacy, to pass along my values and ideals, to protect the ones I love, to provide security and certainty, to facilitate the smooth management of my affairs in the event of my incapacity or death – these represent a few nobler aims that transcend the mere avoidance of an administrative process as one’s major aspiration in planning – something worth considering for two or three minutes. You will likely be able to add several thoughts and ideas to this list.
