Many people do not think they need to, or do not want to, create a will or make someone aware of their final wishes. It can be hard to think about your own mortality. Avoiding estate planning, however, can result in some major details been left on thought of and add to your family’s stress during an already difficult time. In Paramus and other cities throughout the U.S., it is becoming more and more important for people to have a plan for how they would like their loved ones to handle their affairs after they have passed away.
One key detail that is often overlooked when people are planning their estates and writing down their final wishes is what to do with a beloved pet. Pets who do not have arrangements made could find themselves in a shelter, waiting and hoping to be adopted, or even euthanized, if their owner dies.
