The Importance Of Thorough Estate Planning
A comprehensive estate plan is more than just a series of documents – it’s a guarantee that your wishes will be respected, both when you are unable to make decisions for yourself due to incapacity and after you are gone. A well-drafted estate plan provides your family and loved ones with guidance regarding your health care wishes, financial well-being, and the management and transfer of your wealth at death. Careful planning and drafting can also maximize the value of your estate by minimizing unnecessary taxes and expenses, and can also help your family avoid the time and expense of probate.
What An Estate Plan Allows You To Do
Everyone needs an estate plan, even if they don’t have a lot of money, because an estate plan allows you to choose your own personal representative, healthcare agent, attorney-in-fact, trustee and guardian and decide where your assets will go. If you have minor children or a child with special needs, an estate plan also lets you choose a guardian for your children who will ensure that they are raised according to your family’s values. For folks who do have significant resources, estate planning helps avoid or minimize tax obligations and speeds up the management of complex estates.
