Frequently
Asked Questions

You do.  The future is unforeseen and the best way to ensure your wishes will be honored is to take the time to plan ahead. Your age or wealth should not be the deciding factor when it comes to creating an estate plan.  Instead, focus on what your goal is and meet with an attorney to learn how you can accomplish it through a comprehensive estate plan. Perhaps you are concerned about your minor child, entering your retirement years, are recently divorced or married, recovering from an illness or building your wealth – estate planning is beneficial for everyone.

Probate is necessary when someone dies and administration of their estate is needed. The lawyer you hire will work with you to file the necessary paperwork with the court, settle outstanding debts of the decedent and ensure that the remaining estate assets are distributed to the correct beneficiaries either by law or according the deceased individual’s Last Will & Testament.

If your child is 18 years or older they are legally an adult which means it may be difficult for you to help them with financial affairs or even receive health care information regarding their wellbeing. Every adult should consider having the durable power of attorney, designation of health care surrogate, living will and HIPPA authorization. These documents allow for the individual to chose a trusted person to assist with financial decisions as well as receive and make medical decisions (should they be unable to do so themselves).

The Last Will and Testament (or Will) is used to make clear how you wish for your estate to be distributed after your death. You can include guardian nominations for minor children, cremation or burial requests and more.  A Living Will is a medical document makes clear your wishes regarding end of life care (such as the desire to be kept alive by life prolonging measures).

A Revocable Living Trust offers many benefits! Assets held in trust are not subject to probate and, instead, pass directly to the beneficiaries according to the trust terms.  Other potential benefits from using a trust is providing asset protection for your beneficiaries, planning for special needs beneficiaries, protecting assets from irresponsible beneficiaries and more.
