Proper planning of an estate helps to ensure that your wishes are carried out.  Without a Will, Connecticut will claim your estate as "interstate" and then, it will be up to Connecticut's laws to distribute your assets.  This process takes a considerable amount of time and any attorneys' fees will be deducted from the estate, thereby reducing how much of your assets go to your children and children's children. 

Once you plan for your estate, you will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have done your best to protect your family and knowing that you have saved them time and legal fees. 

Even if you have had a Will for awhile, it is important to make sure older Wills are current so that they work properly when they are needed.
