It can be complicated to think about the future, especially when it comes to making plans that pertain to your own mortality. This is why many people avoid the estate planning process. If you have an estate plan, you are already ahead of where many New Jersey adults are, but you may not need to stop there. There are often many reasons why it's necessary to take a second look at existing plans.
If you live in one of the many New Jersey neighborhoods that do not have access to public water and sewer services, your property probably has a septic system or similar process for removing, treating and storing your family's wastewater. You may not have much interest in understanding how that system works as long as it works effectively and does not cause you any headaches.
