A common misconception is that estate planning is only necessary for the wealthy. Even people who consider themselves solidly middle-class need to take steps to ensure that their wishes will be respected if they become unable to speak for themselves and that their loved ones will be protected after they're gone.
Once you own a home or have minor children or other dependents, estate planning is critical to protect your family or loved ones.
