Learn What Estate Planning Options are Right for You

While many people may assume that estate planning is only for the wealthy, setting out a clear plan can benefit anyone. Estate planning refers to the process of arranging for the distribution of your assets among beneficiaries upon the time of your death. No one can predict the future and without a plan in place, the state will begin to divide your estate according to state laws. Whether you are nearing retirement or just want to prepare for the future, creating a detailed estate plan is among the best things you can do for your loved ones.

Services we can help with include:

  • Establishing living trusts
  • Will creation
  • Gifting assets
  • Drafting powers of attorney

Understanding Probate

Probate refers to the process of verifying and managing the instructions of a will. An executor or administrator will carry out the details of a will such as resolving claims, paying taxes, and distributing assets. Complexities such a dispute over inheritance or unclear instructions can increase the likelihood or duration of this process. A long probate can also involve unnecessary fees and may prevent your inheritors from timely access to your estate. Not every asset will need to go through probate but it is a likelihood for which we can help you prepare. The sooner you begin, the more time you will have to tailor your plans and ensure that the bulk of your estate remains distributed amongst your beneficiaries.
