‘Pre-planning Your Funeral is Essential, but Think Twice Before Pre-Paying’ Warns Marietta Elder Lawyer

Based on what I am seeing as a Marietta, Georgia elder law attorney, more and more people are considering pre-planning and pre-paying for their own funeral. For years I have recommended that my clients include their wishes for their final arrangements in their estate plans, but more and more people are bringing it up proactively.

Some of the reasons that people want to take care of their own final arrangements include:

• Saving their loved ones the stress of dealing with this while they are grieving

• Making sure their wishes are carried out

• Setting aside funds and save their family the financial burden

The reasons mentioned above are very honorable, but it is important to do your homework before committing to any pre-paid program. Unfortunately, there have been a number of recent horror stories about pre-paid funerals as of lately.
