Our pets are members of the family, and estate planning is all about making sure that your family is provided for in the event of your passing. Therefore, pet planning is part of the equation if you want to be comprehensively prepared for the future.
Exactly how do you go about planning for a pet? Pets are notoriously poor money managers, and it’s hard to determine exactly how much to leave behind for the pet’s care if you were to find a caretaker and leave this individual a direct bequest.
The above is often times addressed through the creation of a pet trust. While many of us have seen stories circulating throughout the media about wealthy celebrities leaving enormous amounts of money to their pets via these trusts, they can be utilized to great advantage by ordinary people as well.
