Guiding Clients Through Estate Planning and the Probate Process

Estate planning is one of those things that tends to hover around the bottom of most peoples’ to-do lists. They understand that leaving behind a comprehensive plan is a good idea, but they are not certain how to go about it.

In fact, sometimes, many people feel that they simply are not wealthy enough to need estate planning or that it is something that is better left for the future.  However, estate planning is a sensible and necessary step that protects your interests as well as the interests of those you love. When seen from this perspective, it becomes clear just how vital it is to engage the services of a seasoned estate planning attorney.

Why Do You Need an Estate Planning Attorney?

Sometimes people are reluctant to hire an attorney to do their estate planning because they came across an online form for a last will and testament, leading them to believe that if they just fill out a form, everything will be okay.  Unfortunately, this rarely is the case. Estate planning tends to be somewhat more complicated than most people realize and stock forms do not always cover a client’s needs. 

The reality is that small errors or omissions, like a missing signature or an overlooked asset are more common than people realize, and can defeat the whole purpose of an estate plan.

This is why it is critical to work with a lawyer who focuses on estate planning. With their experience, they know what to ask and what to look for so that every aspect of your estate is accounted for and protected. This means peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

Protect Your Assets with an Estate Plan

Most people are familiar with wills, which are a vital part of any estate planning strategy. However, wills do not always cover all of a client’s needs, and are not always the best approach to protecting your assets so that you can pass them on to your family, or loved ones

When you work with anestate planning lawyer like the practitioners at Easy Estate Probate, you’ll be guided through the many options that are available to you.

This includes a last will in testament in addition to other critical documents such as:

  • Living Trusts
  • Designation of healthcare Surrogate
  • Durable Power of Attorney
  • Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts
  • Life Insurance Trusts
  • Family Limited Partnerships
  • Special Needs Trusts

When you work with an attorney, you also get advice on how to minimize payment of inheritance and estate taxes.  Estate planning attorneys further assist with conservatorships and guardianships and can help you to implement a sensible charitable-giving strategy.
