Why estate planning?

We believe that every adult, regardless of age, wealth, or marital status can benefit from speaking with an estate planning attorney. Contrary to popular belief, estate planning can be very affordable, and can be worth every penny when it comes to protect your family.

Things to Consider

While it may seem overwhelming, answering these questions will help you determine what type of estate plan will serve you and your family best:

Do you have children who are dependent on you?
If an unforeseen incident debilitated you, could they have the life they have now?
What is the likelihood that one of your beneficiaries gets a divorce?
To whom would you like your real estate to go?
Do you know how to ensure they get all of it?
Do you dislike the idea of a Probate Court overseeing your things and getting between your will and your family?
How much tax would your children have to pay on your estate?
Could they afford this while your assets move slowly through Probate Court?
Have you arranged for anyone to inherit your firearms?
Do you wish for a specific burial or to have someone perform a specific action with your remains(scattered ashes, buried in a specific plot, etc.)?
Do you wish to leave an inheritance to a life partner who may or may not be recognized?
Is your estate spread over multiple states or nations, or worth more than $5 million?
Are you worried about your pet's well-being if something happens to you?
Do you have the income and retirement funds to cover the costs of a nursing home?
Could you simultaneously afford long-term health care along with your family's expenses?
Are you worried about a beneficiary's inability to handle money?
Do you wish to give to a beneficiary whose taxes already weigh heavily on him or her?
Do any of your beneficiaries struggle with disability, either physical or mental?
Do you worry about who would make the decisions concerning your care if you get sick?
How much money, if any, do you wish to give to charity?
Would you like to leave assets to someone living with government assistance?
Who will make all decisions pertaining to your financial and health situation if you were to get sick?
