Estate Planning

Most people have made no provisions to protect themselves or their family if they are somehow temporarily or permanently incapacitated, or in the event of their death.  If and when these events occur, a lack of clear direction from you could lead to confusion and financial burden for your family and loved ones.  These events can be prevented with a clear plan from you for those left behind.   


What Is Estate Planning?

 An estate plan is simply a plan to look at all assets owned by an individual or couple, consider their objectives for transferring such assets in the event of their death, and help smooth the transfer of such assets to loved ones with a minimum of taxes, expenses, and inconvenience.


Estate Planning Is Not Just For The Wealthy

There is a common misconception that estate planning is only for wealthy people.  That is not true.  Estate planning is very important for anyone who has minor children, owns real property, or owns assets worth over $150,000.  Estate planning helps avoid the high fees and hassles of probate that will drain the value of your estate.


Will vs. A Living Trust

Although a Will helps the court determine your wishes as to who will get your estate, your estate still has to go through a long and expensive process called probate before any of your assets are passed along to your heirs.  The probate process is public, costly, in that probate costs can deplete 4 to 5% of your estate, and can keep your assets tied up for a year or two before the Court resolves your case.  On the other hand, a Living Trust allows your assets to transfer relatively quickly without court intervention, protects your personal information from becoming part of the public court records, and allows beneficial estate planning tools to be used which can provide tax and asset protection. creditor protection and other benefits making a Living Trust the preferred estate planning method in most cases.


A Revocable Living Trust

A revocable living trust is a written legal document that allows you to efficiently transfer your designated assets to your loved ones outside the costly and time-consuming probate process.  Your assets are held in the name of a legal entity called the trust (e.g. "The Tom and Sue Smith Living Trust") for the benefit of yourself, and upon your death, for your appointed beneficiaries.  Most importantly, a revocable living trust enables you to control your estate during your lifetime, such as the power to revoke your trust, retain control of your assets, and alter beneficiaries.
