Our estate planning services include:
Wills: Having a Will in place will make dealing with the death of a loved one significantly easier. When you create a Will, it simplifies the process of how the assets will be distributed by providing instructions on how to do so. It also designates the executor and beneficiaries.
Living Trusts: If you want to avoid the expensive and time-consuming process of probate (authenticating a Last Will and Testament), having a Living Trust is a great option. Although it must be managed and funded in order to distribute your assets in the event that you become deceased, it helps keep your affairs private after death.
Powers of Attorney: With our Power of Attorney services, you can appoint someone to manage your affairs in the unfortunate event that you can no longer do so. From property and assets to financial and medical decisions, the appointed person will be able to act on your behalf until you are able to make decisions for yourself again.
Trust Preparation (including minor and adult beneficiaries): When creating a Trust, it is essential that you cover your bases. The main things you will need to do are:
- Compile a list of all the assets in your estate
- Appoint beneficiaries and your successor trustee
- Designate guardianship for minors (if you have children)
The most important thing to keep in mind is that estate planning is an ongoing process. Your familial, financial, and medical situations can change on a dime. When that happens, it is time to revisit your estate plan and update it accordingly.
