Estate plans outline what will happen to all your things when you die. Without this estate plan, you are said to die intestate, which means the state will dictate who gets what based on a predetermined list. We know that you don’t want to just leave your estate to chance when you die. We can help you to learn about the options you have for creating your estate plan.
As we discussed last week, you have the option to place some of the assets you have in trusts. These trusts can often help your loved ones to avoid the probate process. This can help your family matters to remain private since all the estate business won’t have to go through the public court process.
We know that you don’t want to leave your assets unprotected and your loved ones wondering what will happen after you die. We will discuss your wishes with you. No matter how complex or how simple your estate, we can help you to explore the options you have that will legally distribute your assets after you die.
A good estate plan also serves another purpose — it can help your loved ones to avoid fights and strife after you are gone. Even if your family members get along now, your death might cause stress that makes them act out of character.
