Overview of Estate Planning
Creating an estate plan entails more than simply planning your “final affairs” in anticipation of your eventual passage. An estate plan should be viewed as a tool you can use to effectively manage your estate and financial affairs while you are alive, rather than relegating the plan to only being effective post-death. A quality estate plan is also a vital resource for your loved ones. It provides a valuable roadmap they can use to ensure your hard-earned assets and valuables are properly transferred to the next generation. It is fair to describe an estate plan as a gift that will provide benefits years down the road.
The importance and long-term impact of an estate plan is why it is so critical for you to retain the services of an attorney who understands you, your culture and what you value. This is why you should consider hiring an estate planning attorney, since they will be able to truly understand what you want to achieve from your estate plan.
The Importance of Having a California Estate Plan
You are helping your family now, by creating a comprehensive estate plan in writing, in the event you are not later available to help them in person. Because death is not the only event that can keep us from our families, a complete estate plan guides your doctors and loved ones in caring for you and your assets if you are ever unable to do so yourself. Our experienced attorneys will work with you to understand powers of attorney, advanced medical directives, wills, trusts, and other available planning tools, and whether each is important for you and your needs.
Create A Personalized Will
Working with a Wills lawyer enables you to create a customized estate plan that is tailored to your unique needs, desires, and long-term objectives. You will not be confined to the cookie-cutter estate planning documents that are available to download for free online. A skilled estate planning attorney will help you craft a plan that considers an array of potential future events, conducts a thorough assessment of assets, and will work to structure an estate plan to provide protection and peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
