WHAT CAN ESTATE PLANNING DO?
Estate planning can be as simple or as complex as necessary to meet your needs. If you have one beneficiary and you would simply like to create a plan that allows your property to pass on without having to go through the probate process, estate planning can accomplish that goal. If you have remarried and you have children from both marriages, or if you have heirs who are not particularly good at managing money, estate planning can create a detailed distribution to ensure your goals are met.
THE TOOLS OF ESTATE PLANNING
The most common estate planning tool is the will. This powerful document can do a great deal of work in terms of indicating how property will be passed on. Sometimes, it can work alone. Sometimes, it can be strengthened with a trust and other tools.
Trusts can accomplish many very specific goals. Children with special needs can be served by special needs trusts. Tax issues can be addressed by tax savings trusts. Our experienced lawyers know how to use trusts to accomplish your goals, no matter how unique and specific those goals may be.
