How Our Firm Can Help You Prepare Your Estate Plan
An estate plan essentially distributes your assets to your beneficiaries or heirs and provides financial security to your family upon your death. Additionally, it can also help your loved ones avoid a costly and time-consuming legal process, appoint guardians to take care of your children, and minimize expenses, taxes, and unnecessary delays.
The following are the common estate planning tools we can use to create your estate plan:
- Wills – A written document that expresses your wishes, including how your assets are distributed, how you want your funeral held, and who will be the guardians of your minor children. Without a will, the court will oversee the distribution of your assets, according to state law.
- Trusts – A trust is a fiduciary relationship in which you (the trustor) give another person (the trustee) the right to hold the title of assets on behalf of a third party (the beneficiary) in order to ensure those assets are distributed based on your wishes. The main benefit of a trust is to keep heirs out of probate court.
- Advance healthcare directive – Also known as a medical directive, this legal document specifies what actions should be taken if you become incapacitated and otherwise unable to make your own medical decisions. This helps your family, friends, and your healthcare professionals make the hardest decisions for you and avoid confusion later.
- Power of attorney – This legal document gives one person (the agent or attorney-in-fact) the authority to act on your behalf (the principal). The agent can make decisions about your finances, property, and/or medical care.
