Frequent Estate Planning Questions
An estate planning attorney works with clients to provide peace of mind. They advise their clients on the best way to get their affairs in order to prepare for the future.
It is impossible to predict the future, which is why it is important to prepare for life’s many unknown challenges. Doing so will lift a financial burden and the unnecessary stress from you and your family members.
Estate planning goes beyond a last will and testament. Even the smallest of estates needs much more. Your estate planning and trust lawyer will provide legal services such as drafting living trusts, creating a plan to lessen estate taxes, and ensuring that your assets and life savings are protected. The attorney can also help you appoint a power of attorney or other health care directives. Your attorney will also help you select the best people to help with your affairs, including selection of your personal representatives.
Due to the specialized nature of estate planning, you need to establish an attorney client relationship with a lawyer that handles these types of legal matters frequently. A good estate planning law firm will have outstanding accolades and a proven track record of successfully helping their clients and retirees with complex estate plans. Be sure to find a lawyer you can trust with your financial matters. You should feel comfortable with the attorney you intend to work with on your estate.
It’s easy to neglect your estate as part of your financial planning. However, delaying getting your affairs in order can make a difficult situation for your loved ones. You should hire an estate planning or trust attorney if you have assets, retirement accounts, money that you wish to be distributed to charities upon your passing, a business, or special circumstances such as a disability. It’s especially important to consider working with a family law attorney as well if you have children or a blended family.
