If you are looking for an Estate Planning Attorney, you have come to the right place. When most people hear estate plans, they generally think of wills. No matter what age you are, its important to be thinking about your future and ensuring that your loved ones will be protected. Having a will is important and everyone should be encouraged to have one drawn up for them. However, to protect your estate, drawing up a will is really only the first step in preparing for the future. Equally important, is making arrangements for the manner in which your belongings will be distributed. Options such as Trusts can help you to ensure your assets will pass directly – hassle-free, instead of going through probate, it can save you time, taxes, privacy and fees in the future.
If you have children, you also need to have guardians set up – in case of the worst – so that you can be assured of who will care for your children. In case of illness or long-term disability, you’ll need to have Power of Attorney set up and a Healthcare Proxy. These concerns are all taken care of in a standard Estate Plan package.
