Why Estate Planning is Important!
The biggest misconception that we hear about estate planning is that if you have a will, you don't have to go through probate. In fact, that couldn't be further from the truth. Most of the time, when you have a will you are almost guaranteed probate. You've likely heard many myths and misconceptions like this about estate planning in the past. That's why it's critical that you educate yourself and luckily you've come to the right place. We do countless education events throughout the year to help families just like yours with situations like this. Go to Attend a Free Workshop to educate yourself and your family. You can also go to Reports for even more information. Use these tools to get an understanding of what makes sense for you and your family. When you're ready to start planning, give us a call at (913) 262-2000.FIND OUT MORE
