Using Estate Planning Tools To Protect Your Wishes And Your Legacy
Wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advance health care directives (also called “living wills”) are all vital estate planning documents. These documents shall make certain that distribution of belongings takes place in the manner you choose — either after you pass away or when you are no longer able to take care of your affairs. They also provide for someone to manage your affairs if you are unable to do so.
Tailoring An Estate Plan To Fit Your Needs
Every person’s circumstances are different. Some people are dealing with children with special needs. Other people own property in multiple states. Business owners are concerned with the running of their business after they are gone. The type of estate plan you create must reflect your circumstances to truly serve its purpose.
Some of our clients come to us after poor drafting of their document. For instance, confusing language or mistakes can make it impossible to determine your intention with regard to your property. This sometimes results in the wrong person inheriting property or disputes ending up in probate court.
We take care in drafting documents for you and developing an estate plan that meets your personal circumstances. We shall listen to your concerns and carefully tailor a plan that meets your needs.
