What specific benefits do my loved ones receive if I do estate planning?

The first benefit people usually think of is the tremendous amount of money a family can save in regard to attorney fees, court fees, and taxes. The family also saves a great deal of time because a proper estate plan allows your estate to pass smoothly and easily to your loved ones without undue delay. While the above benefits are very important, I personally believe the most significant benefit a proper estate plan gives to a family is the fact that it clearly spells out your wishes and desires so your family knows they are doing things they way you would want them done. This provides most families with a tremendous amount of comfort.
