What Could Happen if You Don’t Have a Long Island Estate Planning Attorney?
If you do not have an estate planning attorney, some of the potential problems that you could experience or pitfalls that could result include:
- You may be unable to control who inherits your money or property: If you do not make a legally valid last will and testament or use other tools to transfer your wealth to loved ones, intestacy law may determine who inherits rather than you. You deserve to have the right to pass assets onto your chosen heirs or beneficiaries and you should have an experienced attorney who can help you with that process.
- You may use the wrong estate planning tools: Many people don’t understand the different estate planning tools that they could use to provide for their loved ones and control their legacy. For example, you may believe if you have a living trust, your assets are safe in case you require Medicaid or in case your estate owes estate tax. However, a living trust doesn’t allow you to avoid estate tax and the assets in the living trust still count as assets for purposes of determining if you can qualify for Medicaid coverage. Mark S. Eghrari & Associates, PLLC will help you to ensure you have the right tools to achieve your desired objectives.
These are just some of the many reasons why it is so important for you to have an advocate on your side representing you and advising you about the estate planning process. Because there may also be other issues that are specific to your situation, there is no substitute for personalized advice from an attorney who knows the details about your goals, your assets, and your loved ones.
