What can an estate planning attorney help with?
Our estate planning attorneys are knowledgeable and ready to help with all of the following:
- Wills: Perhaps the most important testamentary document, people need to write wills to secure the goals for their estate and help simplify their family’s road to recovery after their passing.
- Trusts: People establish trusts to help beneficiaries in their will. The person who will manage the trust is generally known as the trustee.
- Conservatorships: The court process for getting legal authority to make financial or personal care decisions for a person unable to take care of him or herself.
- Life insurance planning: Life insurance is one of the most important things you should consider when planning your estate. Many people hire attorneys to help them establish irrevocable life insurance trusts.
- Advance healthcare directive: Though it is a rather gloomy subject, it is always best to plan for how you will be treated at the end of your life. An experienced attorney can help you establish clear and indisputable instructions for your loved ones to follow in case you ever become incapacitated.
- Estate administration: Those selected as personal representatives are in charge of completing the estate administration process. Their end goal is to close the estate honestly and efficiently.
- Financial planning: One of the most important aspects of estate planning is getting a clearer understanding of where you stand financially. Many people seek to save money and plan for unforeseen circumstances.
- Power of attorney: Powers of attorney will help you round out an estate plan for flexibility to handle unforeseen circumstances. A durable power of attorney grants you the peace of mind that your personal affairs will be handled as you would have intended in the event of your incapacity.
