Helping You Retain Family Heirlooms, Property and Money
Many people think that estate planning is something that is commonly thought of to only be for the wealthy. This is just not the case. Drawing up a will or setting up a trust is a practical way to plan for and implement the transfer of assets during life and upon death. It also helps ensure that your wishes about funeral arrangements and end-of-life care will be honored.
Studies have shown that up to 70 percent of Americans do not have valid wills or estate plans. A well-written will eases the transition for survivors by transferring property quickly and avoiding many tax burdens. In addition, wills and trusts protect family finances and cherished property so that distribution is not solely at the discretion of a probate court judge unfamiliar with your family.
