Estate Planning & Wills
Everyone should have an estate plan, which can include a last will and testament, trusts and/or advance directive such as a healthcare power of attorney and living will.
Estate planning is one of the most important steps a person can make to ensure that their final property and health care wishes are honored, and that loved ones are provided for in their absence. An Estate Plan helps to resolve a number of legal questions that arise whenever someones passes away, including: What is the state of their financial affairs? What real and personal property do they own? Who gets what? Does a personal guardian need to be appointed to care for minor children? How much tax will need to be paid in order to transfer property ownership? What funeral arrangements are appropriate? and much more.
