Everyone, regardless of age or financial status, should have an estate plan in place. Without an estate plan, your loved ones could be subject to the probate process and intestacy laws.
There are many considerations in deciding what kind of estate plan you need and there are a variety of tools available to meet your estate planning needs. Whether you need to designate someone to inherit your possessions or you want to minimize taxes and manage funds, we can advise you on the best strategy to meet those goals.
Estate planning also involves giving permission to family members or an attorney to carry out your wishes if you become incapacitated while still alive.
There may be additional tools available to help you meet your needs and goals. Contact our office to learn what options may be right for you now and after the death of a loved one during the probate and estate administration process.
