Why Estate Planning Will Ensure Your Independence This 4th of July

Updated: Jul 6, 2022

Did you know “the 4th of July—variously known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution” in America? As we celebrate the independence of America today, it is also time to plan to be able to celebrate our own independence now and in the future. We all know that the future is uncertain. How do we protect ourselves, our family, and our businesses upon incapacity or death? The answer is simple: you need to have an estate plan in place.

We have the freedom to dispose of our property how and to whom we like. Whatever your goals are for your property and your family — whatever it is that gives meaning to your life — you can preserve those and leave your mark. When talking to your estate planning attorney about what you need this 4th of July, make sure to discuss wills, trust agreements, health care directives, guardianship of minor children (if applicable), financial powers of attorney, and living wills. By having these documents in place, you will not only have peace of mind, but also truly have freedom.

Scarola Law wishes you a Happy and Safe 4th of July holiday!
