Business Succession Planning
Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. Guardians are often designated for minor children and beneficiaries in incapacity.
Probate and Estate Planning Lawyers
Having a complete estate plan in place is one of the most important things you can do for your family prior to your death. Everyone should have an estate plan, regardless of age and income level. At the very least, individuals should have a Last Will and Testament and advance health care directives.
An estate plan is the best way for you to communicate your wishes for how your assets should be distributed and how your medical care should be handled. There are a number of issues that need to be considered and many possible solutions to help you reach your goals.
