There are many reasons why someone may want to devise their estate plan. Perhaps they are wanting to protect assets and ensure that those they love receive a piece of their legacy that can be passed down to future generations. Or they may have just been diagnosed with an illness and want to get their affairs in order. There are limitless factors that can contribute to someone becoming sick. For instance, someone who is diagnosed with an asbestos-related condition later in life because of working with asbestos material may be motivated to solidify their end of life wishes through establishing a legally-binding documentation, like an estate plan.
