What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is more than just drafting a last will and testament. It also involves drafting living trusts, developing a plan to mitigate, or avoiding estate taxes, and ensuring that your assets and life’s savings are safe from the creditors of your beneficiaries.
An estate planning lawyer can also prepare a power of attorney and health care directives that will arrange a trustee to take care of your affairs in the event you were ever to become mentally incapacitated.
A comprehensive estate plan can involve one or more of the following:
- Living wills & trusts
- Revocable & irrevocable trusts
- Power of attorney
- Asset protection
- Wealth preservation
- Will contests
In addition to these services, our attorneys also handle cases involving:
- Trust litigation
- Intestate succession
- Guardianships & conservatorships
What Does an Estate Plan Include?
An estate plan generally includes a will and/or a trust, healthcare power of attorney, Advanced Health Care Directive, beneficiary designations, durable power of attorney, and guardianship designations. However, every family’s needs and situations are different, so this is not a comprehensive list, but rather some of the most common documents.
Your attorney will generally file a change of Deed with the County Recorders office if real property is placed in the living trust. This correctly moves the property into the trust and makes it accessible to the beneficiaries.
Our focus is on protecting your family legacy and assets and maximizing value for your beneficiaries.
