The main reason to plan will be different from person to person. But the process can be made enjoyable, and the benefits significant.
Some of the reasons people plan:
Everything in its place
Taking comfort in knowing their affairs are in order, and that there is a plan.
Against children losing inheritance due to divorce or bankruptcy.
Having been an executor on someone else's will, and knowing how complex probate can be.
What does asset protection try to solve?
Mitigate Inheritance Tax
Prevent unnecessary double taxation.
Protect money if your children/grandchildren get divorced.
Later Life Care
Protect the family home against care home fees.

We give some insight into these below, if only to explain what you can generally avoid by proper planning.
