practice
  You cannot take it with you.  You do not want the Court to decide
where your children or belongings go after you are gone.  This planning
will not only give you piece of mind but make it easier for the ones left
behind.

  There are several options available to you.  There are simple wills when
you either do not have many assets or people who will be taking from the
estate.  For example, if you are married and everything is going to either
your surviving spouse or kids, a will can be done to serve all your needs
at an affordable price.  

  Now if you have a sizable estate or many different people or
foundations taking from your estate, your estate plan will take a more
sophisticated approach.  Often times, the estate plan will involve putting
your assets in Trusts.  You will be advised of tax consequences or
benefits which each potential move.

  With any estate plan, it is urgent to have a Power of Attorney and
Living Will.  If you become incapacitated, you will need to give both your
Doctors and family some guidance in what to do in specific cases.  
Without such guidance, the Court may need to be involved to make these
very important choices for you.
