The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Offers The Perfect Gift Idea For Every Family For This Holiday And Any Occasion.
Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, shares a dramatic example of one couple that did not have an estate planning strategy in place and encourages every family to give the gift of security that a well thought out estate plan provides.
DECATUR, GA, December 07, 2021: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “A Well Thought Out Estate Planning Strategy Is The Perfect Gift,” in which Ms. Pawley shares a story that may motivate some readers to take action.
Pawley writes, “Here we are again moving into another holiday season and the end of another year fraught with ongoing fears about COVID-19 and its parade of variants. If there’s ever been a reason to establish a well thought out estate planning strategy,” she says, “living in a pandemic environment is a very clear catalyst for the need for well-founded planning. However, a friend recently sent me something she found on Facebook that, in my book, rivals the urgency provided by the pandemic.”
Pawley states, “And I quote: “Well, it’s done. My parents’ divorce was finalized yesterday. They are no longer married after 52 years. Still in love and still together but divorce was necessary because of dad’s medical bills. Now, when dad passes, mom won’t be saddled with $288,000 in debt. She’s free and the house is in her name. Pretty sad that decades of marriage comes to an end because of the American medical system.”
Pawley contends, “What a heartbreaking and drastic way to deal with medical expenses. I’m sure there were also costs associated with getting a divorce that could have been avoided.” As Pawley points out, “I don’t know the person who posted this story, nor do I know the circumstances that led her parents to the decision to divorce. But I do know that divorce is not a common technique used in estate planning.”
