Everyone is guilty of procrastination from time to time. Objects of procrastination range from doing the laundry to plowing the driveway after a Salt Lake City snowstorm. We here at York Howell are no strangers to the aversion felt when itâ€™s time organizing a sock drawer.
Different consequences result from avoiding different responsibilitiesâ€”some more serious than others. Putting off estate planning often results in the more serious of those consequences.
People often put off meeting with a legal advisor because they feel they â€œarenâ€™t old enough.â€ Estate planning isnâ€™t reserved for those ages 55 and up. If one has assets they plan to leave to loved ones, it is time to start the processâ€”even if itâ€™s just a one bedroom home in Salt Lake City.
Some avoid asset protection because of the confusing legal jargon and complex laws that need to be considered. Weâ€™re here to help make sense of the confusion and present it in a manner thatâ€™s far more digestible for the layperson. We do the brunt of the legwork, saving you the time and headache.
There are a myriad of reasons we justify putting off estate planning. But each one of these excuses needs to be overcome. In the end, youâ€™ll be glad you did.
