Taking the time now to thoroughly plan your estate is the only way to ensure that your wishes and desires are manifested in the future. Our attorneys are skilled at helping you make the right estate planning decisions, a benefit not only to yourself but to the ones you leave behind. What are the advantages to estate planning?
Providing for your immediate family is the first advantage that comes to mind. If you have children under the age of 18, both you and your spouse should have a will nominating personal guardians for the children. Without your will, a court will decide without your input where your kids will live and who will make important life decisions about their money, education, and way of life.
Choosing who controls your estate, by saying who is competent to serve as your executor/trustee, not only do you save money, you will reduce the burden on your survivors, and simplify administration of your estate.
Minimize expenses; good estate planning can keep the cost of transferring property to beneficiaries as low as possible, leaving more money for their benefit.
