One of the main keys to estate planning, if you want the whole process to go smoothly, is communication. You need to talk to the other members of your family who will be impacted by the plan. Experts advise sitting down and creating a family communication plan to address this process.

People often assume that estate planning just means writing a will. That's a good place to start. The biggest mistake people make is not drafting a will or doing any planning whatsoever. But that doesn't mean that a will is all you need or that there aren't other mistakes you should guard against.

For children, starting that estate planning conversation may feel intimidating or even impossible. You want to talk to your parents because you know they haven't done enough planning -- or any at all -- but you don't want them to be insulted. You don't want it to sound like you're just trying to find out what you're going to get when they pass away.

When you create an advance directive, you lay out your wishes for medical care in writing. These are decisions you would typically make in person, at the time they need to be made, but the advance directive gives you some insurance if you're unable to do that. You can address things like what lifesaving machines you want the doctors to use and whether or not you should be resuscitated.

When was the last time you gave some serious thought to your estate plan? If you cannot remember, or if you have never done any estate planning, you are not alone. We will all need it eventually, so why don't we think about it more often?
