Regardless of your status and assets, everyone should have a plan in place; whether you are single, married, have children, or other loved ones. Doing so will save your loved ones the time and cost of going through probate, and a lot of stress along the way.

The Importance of Estate Planning

Specifically, estate planning allows you to prepare for the possibility of incapacity, create security for your loved ones, protect their inheritance, and avoid probate court and taxes. This is especially important if you own property, have retirement savings, are involved in second or subsequent marriages, have children with special needs, and/or if you are a business owner. Estate planning is not just trust administration and drafting wills, it is also planning for business succession, asset protection, and/or gift planning.

What can a Trust do for You?

While wills dictate who will receive property, what charitable bequests will be made, how any children should be cared for, etc., trusts transfer assets and ensure a smooth transition of wealth with minimum tax liability. A trust attorney essentially sets up a trust on your behalf and helps you set up a trustee to manage the trust, and in doing so, allows you to dictate when your beneficiaries will receive their inheritance.
