Basics of Estate Planning

Estate planning involves making decisions about the management and distribution of your assets, both during life and after death. It also involves decisions regarding disability, incapacitation, and end-of-life care.

  • How will your beneficiaries avoid what is often an expensive and time-consuming probate process?
  • How to avoid or minimize disputes between heirs over your assets?
  • How will you protect your heirs from their creditors?
  • When and how will your beneficiaries receive the assets you want to pass on to them?
  • How can you avoid paying estate or gift taxes?
  • Who will manage your assets if you become incapacitated by illness or injury, or if you pass away?
  • Who will make sensitive healthcare decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated?
  • Who will become the legal guardian of your minor children if you are unable to care for them in the future?
