What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is a process that involves making important decisions regarding your family, health care, financial and business matters and property while you are still healthy and able. Planning for these matters while you are still healthy will safeguard your wishes and protect you and your loved ones before a crisis strikes.
What is an Estate Plan Going to Do For Me?
Your estate plan will help you control decisions about your life including:
- How your property will be distributed after you die;
- How decisions regarding your health and quality of life should be made in the event you are unable;
- How your funeral arrangements will be handled;
- Reducing or eliminating the government’s ability to interfere with your personal affairs.
You can take advantage of an array of estate planning tools, including:
- Wills, including creating a will, contesting a will, Living Wills, revising a will & updating a will
- Trusts, including different types of trusts, such as Irrevocable Trusts, Revocable Trusts, Testamentary Trusts, & Special Needs Trusts
- Advance directives
- Financial power of attorney
- Letter of instruction
