One of the most challenging topics to discuss when creating an estate plan is the topic of your remains. As attorneys, we meet people from all backgrounds, many of whom have varying wishes as to what should happen to their remains after they die.
Oftentimes, the default plan that people chose is to be buried through a funeral home. There is no law requiring the use of a funeral home, though many choose to do so because of the full range of services offered, which can make the entire burial process a little easier. If you would like to retain the services of a funeral home, then you should research funeral homes now and make arrangements for a prepaid funeral. Planning ahead will alleviate the stress your loved ones may feel about making arrangements for your burial and can help ensure that the funeral home of your choosing provides services you desire.
