When planning their estates, one thing that Washington residents often forget about is their pets. Despite the fact that nearly two-thirds of all Americans own at least one pet, animals are often overlooked in estate plans. If you fail to plan, your furry companion could end up in a shelter or worse. To ensure that their pets receive the right kind of care, individuals should consider these four suggestions.
Estate planning is one of the things in life that people in Washington and around the country tend not to consider until they have to.

When people fall ill unexpectedly, it can be a scramble to get affairs in order, and a basic estate plan can be established with only a bit of time and effort.
