With the proper planning, you can avoid having the court systems take control of your assets, including your bank accounts and real estate, and making those decisions for you. We can guide you through the estate planning process to ensure that everything is cared for properly.
The following are some important factors that we will care for:
The living trust allows your family to avoid going through the probate process to determine what happens with your property after you pass. It also allows a person you designate to maintain control of the property and ensure that it is managed properly upon your death.
Power Of Attorney
The power of attorney (POA) permits you to appoint someone to manage your affairs in the event that you are unable to do so. There are a number of different types of powers of attorney, including general, special, healthcare and durable.
Probate is the legal process that would occur after someone dies if they don't have a living trust in place. It involves having the property appraised, identifying and inventory property, presenting the will in court, paying debts and taxes and distributing property.
This type of planning can protect your assets from the claims of creditors. It is often used to limit access to valuable assets.
Now is the time to safeguard your assets and prepare for your family's future. You can contact us for a free case evaluation to learn more about the process and how we can make the decisions stress-free.
