If you became unable to make decisions and needed a legal guardian appointed, there would be increased legal and court costs, and the appointed guardian might not be who you would prefer. If you were to die without an estate plan, your assets would be distributed according to state law, which may not be according to your wishes. Our goal is to help you maintain control over these important choices.
