What Are the Benefits of Estate Planning?
Any individual, regardless of the exact amount of wealth and assets you
have, can benefit from estate planning. It helps keep your wealth within
your family, away from expensive taxes, and ensure that your assets are
distributed in the desired way. If you don't have a will, your family
or the state may end up deciding who is entitled to your assets, and much
will go to taxes. In addition,
your estate planning lawyer will continue to act on your behalf after you've passed on, to ensure your estate plan is carried out properly.
Why Would You Need to Set Up a Living Will?
A living will is a document put in place while the author of the will is
alive in order to
specify medical directions in the event that the author cannot speak for
themselves. For example, a living will might include an order to not resuscitate
if they become terminally ill or end up in a coma. An estate planning
attorney from our firm can help you specify exactly which decisions to
make and what to include in a living will, should something like this
ever happen to you or your loved one.
