An estate plan provides peace of mind for both you and your family members by protecting your assets and ensuring your estate is managed according to your values and priorities during your incapacity, extended hospitalization, or death. Your estate plan provides arrangement for the care of those who survive you, designate your guardians for your children in the event of your death, as well as providing for others, such as your elderly parents or special needs family members. An estate plan can keep our estate out of probate, a costly and time-consuming process, where the government/court decides how your estate is distributed. Without an estate plan, your family and loved ones bear the burden and litigation costs of distributing and managing your assets if you die or become disabled/incapacitated. Estate planning documents are private documents that are created and customized to your specific value and priorities, protecting your estate, passing your wealth on to loved ones. Our estate planning lawyers have a thorough understanding of the laws that govern your estate and know how to strategically plan to pass your wealth on to your loved ones, save you money, and carry out your wishes.
An estate plan consists of:
- Power of Attorney
- Advance Health Care Directive
- Trust Transfer Deed and Quitclaim Deed
