Estate Planning Attorneys Help Make Sure Your Kids are Provided For
If you have children, you need an estate plan in place to ensure they have the right guardian and the right financial support if something happens to you and you cannot raise them to adulthood. You do not want the court deciding who should raise your kids if you can’t, and you also do not want your kids to be in the middle of a battle over custody if something happens to you. Making an advanced plan allows you to avoid that, select the best person to raise your kids, and make a plan to provide for them financially even if you can’t be there to raise them.
Estate Planning Attorneys Help With Incapacity or End of Life Issues
Many issues could arise towards the end of life, including questions about what kinds of medical care you want and whether extraordinary measures should be used to save or extend your life. Making an estate plan can help you to address these issues in advance so you get exactly the care you want and so you spare your family from a difficult situation. You can also make an incapacity plan to ensure that your assets are managed carefully and your decisions are made by a trusted person in case you cannot act on your own.
Estate Planning Attorneys Help You to Leave Your Desired Legacy
We provide assistance in determining the best way to transfer assets and in implementing a plan to facilitate the timely and low-cost transfer of wealth. We can help you to use tools like trusts, pay-on-death accounts, gifting during your lifetime, and joint ownership to make sure your heirs or beneficiaries inherit the maximum amount of money and property quickly. We can also help you to take control over the way an inheritance is used and to address the special needs of heirs or beneficiaries, such as disability status or financial irresponsibility.
