The Tools & Benefits of Estate Planning
Many legal tools can be used to handle all of the various aspects of your estate in the event of your passing or incapacity.
- Powers of Attorney
- Advance Health Directives
These legal instruments provide instructions for how you wish the assets and property in your estate to be passed, allow you to appoint someone you trust to carry out these instructions, leave instructions as to the medical care you wish to have or not have should you be unable to express your wishes, designate someone to handle your financial affairs when you are unable to, streamline the process for the distribution of your estate to your heirs and beneficiaries, and can lessen or eliminate the taxes, court costs, and other fees that may result from your passing.
Without a will or an estate plan, your property or other assets will be handled by the probate process without any direction from you. This can result in problems such as family conflicts, delays in the distribution, and other unintended consequences that can be time-consuming, expensive, and frustrating for your family.
