Creating An Effective Estate Plan

Estate planning involves more than just having a will. The goal of any effective estate plan is the execution of your wishes upon your incapacity or death. Another goal is to avoid probate or other potentially lengthy court processes when your estate is administered after your death. For most clients, estate planning involves providing for one’s family and/or loved ones. Examples of situations where such planning is necessary include:

  • Designating a power of attorney to make financial/asset decisions for you should you become incapacitated
  • Executing a health care durable power of attorney to designate someone else to make medical decisions for you should you become incapacitated
  • Avoiding probate through the creation of a trust
  • Avoiding probate by naming a beneficiary to your home
  • Ensure your home goes to your spouse without them needing to go through the costly and lengthy probate process
  • Providing for minor children or special needs children in the event of your death or other incapacitation
  • Planning for death taxes
  • Providing for gifts to charities or religious organizations upon your death
  • Planning for your retirement and/or elder care
