Life is unpredictable. No one knows what tomorrow will bring. Death or incapacitation can happen at any time without any notice, as is so often the case. All of us are subject to this, regardless of age or health.
Being prepared for whatever the future may bring will not prevent all related issues from arising, but it will go a long way to simplify them. This is even more important if you have a family. With loved ones like children or grandchildren relying on your income or receiving your assets after you pass, it is crucial you leave them in the best position possible.
On top of this, you should want them to focus on caring for your needs in the event you are incapacitated rather than be bogged down with court proceedings. If you die, you should also want them to be able to mourn properly rather than be preoccupied with far less important things. Failure to properly plan for these unpleasant realities will leave your loved ones spending time and emotional energy handling legal paperwork and proceedings instead.
A critical aspect of being prepared for this is developing a robust estate plan. It may seem foreign or something only the extremely wealthy do, but with the assistance of a good estate planning attorney, this does not have to be the case. In order to be as effective as possible, an estate plan should consider as many scenarios as possible. Failure to do so could mean your loved ones do not reap as much of your life's work as they would otherwise.
