Why is estate planning important?
Estate planning allows you to control what happens to your assets and property after you pass away. It ensures that your loved ones are provided for and that your wishes are carried out. Without a proper estate plan in place, your assets and property may be distributed according to state law, which may not align with your wishes.
Getting started with estate planning can seem daunting, but our attorneys will guide you through every step of the process. Here’s what you can expect:
- Consultation: We’ll schedule an initial consultation to discuss your goals, concerns, and needs.
- Evaluation: Our attorneys will evaluate your assets and create a customized plan that meets your individual needs.
- Execution: We’ll work with you to execute your estate plan, including creating a will or trust, assigning power of attorney, and more.
There are several types of estate planning vehicles that can help you achieve your goals. Here are some of the most common:
- Wills: A will is a legal document that outlines your wishes for the distribution of your assets and property after you pass away. It also allows you to name an executor to manage your affairs.
- Trusts: A trust is a legal vehicle that allows you to transfer assets to a trustee to manage for the benefit of your beneficiaries. There are several types of trusts, including revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, and special needs trusts.
- Powers of Attorney: A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to designate someone to make financial or medical decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated.
