Thinking about the end of your life - and what comes after - is never easy. It's also a difficult topic to broach with those that you love the most. However, it is one of the most important conversations that you can have. Communicating your needs and desires for your end of life care as well as your wishes for after your death provides your family with the confidence they need in order to make those important decisions when the time comes. While a conversation is a great place to start, it's not legally binding. An experienced attorney at an estate planning law firm can help you create a living will, as this is an effective way to express your desires as well as a legally binding document that will ensure your wishes are met.
