By our Smarty friends at Starrett Law Firm
Did you know that approximately 50 percent of Americans with minor children don’t have a will? Are you part of that 50 percent? If so, you should know that if you die without a will, the court will lack your guidance when appointing a guardian to raise your children. Additionally, state statutes will determine who receives your property.
It’s a scary thought. And a will is just one part of a complete estate plan. Advance medical directives and powers of attorney are equally important but often overlooked.
That’s why, since 2008, the third week in October has been recognized as National Estate Planning Awareness Week.
While no one enjoys thinking about disability or death, developing a comprehensive estate plan is one of the most important steps that you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones.
In recognition of National Estate Planning Awareness Week and to raise awareness within the Charlotte community of the benefits of preparing a complete estate plan, Starrett Law Firm is giving away a customized estate planning package valued at $1500.
Facebook users who “Like” Starrett Law Firm’s Facebook page during the month of October will be entered to win the customized estate plan, which includes a will, general power of attorney, health care power of attorney, living will, and HIPAA waiver. Click on image below to enter on facebook.
At Starrett Law Firm, we understand that families are busier than ever, and estate planning often falls to the bottom of the ‘to do’ list. That’s why, during National Estate Planning Awareness Week, we are also scheduling a limited number of free in-home consultations. It’s a first for us, and we hope it makes a difference for those who want to learn more about protecting themselves and their family but are struggling to find the time.
In addition, anyone who engages Starrett Law Firm for their estate planning during that week (Oct. 21-27) will receive ten percent off our services.
