ESTATE PLANNING & PROBATE
No matter what your stage in life, a well-executed estate plan can ensure that your final wishes are carried out, avoid costly taxes, and unnecessary probate proceedings.
If you have minor children, it is essential to develop an estate plan that names a guardian to care for your children in the event of your incapacitation or death. In addition to establishing a guardian, many estate plans create a trust and name a trustee to manage money for children until they are mature enough to make smart financial decisions.
Appointing a power of attorney to make financial decisions on your behalf can eliminate the need for family members to obtain a conservatorship should you become unable to manage your finances.
A living will is a legal document that gives you power over your future medical care. This document provides an outlet for you to communicate your wishes regarding end-of-life health care and whether you would like artificial measures used to sustain your life.
