Thinking about death, accident or illness is never pleasant. However, if something does happen, it’s good to know that family members will not be forced into making uninformed decisions, or be burdened with excessive administrative details. Planning ahead is much more efficient, inexpensive and thoughtful than burdening a family during a period of grief
- Wills, living trusts, and powers of attorney can be very important in preserving our assets and in getting property where we want it to go. Without a will or living trust, upon a person’s death, that person’s assets are disposed of according to state law, which may or may not match the deceased person’s desires.
A living trust offers complete control to clients during their lifetime, provides for them and their loved ones in the event of their incapacity, and on death allows them to pass their assets to their loved ones without the costs, delays and publicity associated with probate.
- Planning and providing for you and for your family’s future in the event of your death is one of the most important actions you can take in your lifetime. Without this plan, your assets may not be distributed according to your wishes. While not always an easy task, a qualified estate planning attorney can help guide you through the process.
If you’ve recently married, divorced, had a child, inherited money, purchased a home, or experienced another major life change, now is the perfect time to create or revisit your will to make sure it reflects your current circumstances.
