Estate Planning

What will happen to your assets when you’re gone?

Estate planning is simply determining (while you’re still alive) where your assets should go after you die. Without a properly structured estate plan, your wishes may not be fulfilled, and there may be unintended consequences for your loved ones. It is important to plan for any remaining assets to go to your loved ones in a private, expeditious and tax-efficient manner.

While the concept may seem simple, the vehicles, planning and implementation process can be rather complex. Because of the estate tax laws and the emerging vehicles to help you protect and transfer your assets effectively, it’s important to work with experienced estate planning professionals who stay current in this field and advise clients on a day-to-day basis. Estate planning is a very important piece of a well-rounded retirement strategy. We are happy to work with you and a qualified estate planning attorney to help you pass on the legacy you choose.

Probate

A will can save your loved ones time, money and hassle.

Probate is the potentially lengthy and costly court process by which a will is proved either valid or invalid. If you do not create a will or set up a trust to transfer your property when you die, state law will determine what happens to your estate. This is called intestate.

Without a will or some other form of legal estate planning, there is the chance that your property may not go where you wish. We can refer you to a qualified estate planning attorney who can assist you in these matters.

Trusts

What’s the best way to leave money to loved ones?

There are many different types of trusts, and they can be complex to set up and execute. However, a trust can be a very flexible and advantageous means to transfer your assets in the future. Trusts can also provide current benefits, such as tax deferral and deductions. Unlike a will, a trust may help avoid probate upon your death.

We are happy to work together with you and a qualified estate planning attorney to help you learn more about trusts and ensure they work in concert with your overall financial strategy.
