Estate Planning

  • Wills
  • Living Trusts
  • Power of Attorney for Financial Matters
  • Advance Health Care Directives
Dealing with end of life decisions can be daunting and overwhelming. Because of this, many people procrastinate in formulating even a basic estate plan. However, if not dealt with in a timely manner, it will force your loved ones to make difficult decisions often times not knowing or understanding your wishes. The most basic element of your estate plan is a Will that provides instructions for the distribution of your estate after your death. While simple, it can have unexpected consequences, including requiring the estate to be probated. Probate is a time consuming process with oversight by the Court that can take a year or more. Revocable living trusts, also simply called “living trusts” on the other hand may be a more beneficial estate plan if your estate exceeds $150,000 in value. Placing your assets in a Living Trust can help your beneficiaries to avoid probate after your death. A trust can also act as a substitute for a will and give instructions about how you wish your assets to be managed during your life and after your death. We also advise our clients to have an Advance Health Care Directive drafted which describes who should make and how medical decisions should be made in the event of your incapacity. A Power of Attorney for Financial Matters is also an important component of your estate plan to direct how your financial assets should be handled when you can no longer perform these tasks yourself. As your family and/or financial situation changes over time, we can amend your estate documents to more accurately reflect your wishes. So, contact our office if you believe that we can help you achieve an effective estate plan.
