Why do Estate Planning?

Estate Planning is commonly referred to as assets, things such as your house, investment property, business, savings accounts, IRAs, life insurance, collectables, or an antique car are just a few of the things you may have worked very hard for.

After you have passed away, what happens with the things you have collected over the years? What good would you hope those things could do for others? Do you want them distributed to family, friends and/or charity?  Who are the people or causes that are most important to you? These are all important questions to answer with effective estate planning.

We help clients everyday who want to create an effective plan to transfer their wealth, creating a legacy that will last long after they are gone.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Power of Attorney?

Power of attorney is the granting of legal rights to another person. Decisions you would typically make for yourself are made by that person in the event you are unable to do so. It is one of the most powerful estate planning tools because it gives the decision-making power that is yours alone to someone else. This person has the ability to make legal decisions concerning financial affairs and other matters.

Do I need to create a medical directive?

Medical directives explain your medical wishes and instructions in case you are unable to communicate these decisions yourself at the time they are needed. You will appoint someone to make and carry out your wishes. You should discuss your wishes with the person you choose to be your health care proxy. Medical directives are an important part of estate planning, so no matter how unpleasant it might be for you and your loved ones to discuss, it is necessary and will save a great deal of emotional trauma in the future.

I’m worried my family will contest my will. What can I do to prevent this from happening?

All families have challenges and sometimes, these issues spill over into the planning and settling of an estate. There are several things you can do to make the arrangement you intend more likely to be upheld once you are gone:

• Ensure your will is properly executed by working with an experienced attorney
• Explain your decisions to family while you are still alive

I don’t really own anything. Do I still need a will?

Your last will and testament is a legally binding document that clearly states your final wishes, ensuring your estate is distributed exactly as instructed.  If you’re young and single and have few or no assets, a simple will might suffice.

If you’re married, your spouse will most likely be the beneficiary of your estate. A will is still helpful to have in case questions arise.
