Why do many people resist estate planning? I think that there are several reasons:
1. Estate planning forces us to confront our own mortality.
2. Some people are uncomfortable talking about their private lives with attorneys.
3. Indecision and overwhelm.
4. Expense and reluctance to deal with attorneys.
However, if you let these emotional hurdles stop you from creating an estate plan, you may miss out on the emotional benefits of estate planning.
