What Should My Estate Plan Have?
Your personal and financial situation is unique. Granted, there are a few documents that every good estate plan should have. These include:
- Last will and testament: This identifies which assets should go to which beneficiary.
- Beneficiary designations: A beneficiary is someone who receives your assets and property after you die.
- Power of attorney: If you become incapacitated a power of attorney allows someone else to make legal decisions on your behalf.
- Living will: This document informs medical staff of your wishes regarding your end-of-life care. People also refer to them as advanced health care directives.
- Trust: You can use trusts to hold money or other assets before it passes to a beneficiary. They are helpful tools to avoid probate.
Our team of lawyers can explain how these documents apply to your particular circumstances. We can then tailor them to suit you and your family’s needs.
