Will Based Estate Planning
Having a will ensures your assets will be distributed among your beneficiaries according to your wishes, rather than at the discretion of the court. It is never too soon to begin your estate planning. No one can be sure of what the future holds, but a proper estate plan will help you and your family better prepare for the unexpected. Our team can help you determine if a will-based estate plan is right for you.
Trust Based Estate Planning
The distribution of an inheritance can often cause disputes among family members. A trust will help to make this process smoother, as well as reduce other complications that may affect the timely disposition of your assets. We are able to set up a revocable or irrevocable trust for you in order to ensure your wealth is protected and passed on according to your wishes. A properly funded Trust based estate plan can help you avoid probate.
Special/Supplemental Needs Planning
Caring for a loved one with special needs requires additional planning. We understand how important it is to make sure that your loved one continues to receive proper care and financial support in the event of your absence, incapacitation, or death. We can work with you to establish a special needs trust, as well as appoint a trustworthy guardian or conservator who acts in the best interest of your loved one in your place. Adult Guardianships and Conservatorships can be avoided if you have the proper estate plan in place before incapacity.
Nursing Home Planning
As you age, you may begin to experience declines in your mental and physical health which make it difficult to manage the daily activities of living on your own. You may find yourself requiring additional care and support. Unfortunately, this can come at a high cost. Long-term care costs can be a massive financial burden on you and your loved ones. Early planning will provide you with more options to prepare for the retirement you want.
The safety, health, comfort, and well-being of your child will always be of primary concern to you as a parent. No parent wants to leave their child unprotected. In the event of your incapacitation or death, it is important to have a guardian you trust appointed for you child. However, it is also important to think about selecting a conservator to manage your child’s inheritance until they become of age.
A guardian or conservator can help to protect and provide care for an incapacitated or disabled adult who is unable to manage the daily activities of living on their own. They can make important legal, financial, and medical decisions on behalf of the individual, as well as assist them with their physical needs. We can help you explore your options to determine if appointing an adult guardian or conservator is the best choice for your loved one. Adult Guardianships and Conservatorships can be avoided if you have a proper estate plan in place before you become incapacitated.
