BUILDING THE RIGHT ESTATE PLAN
When implemented correctly, a trust can be a great asset for any estate plan. But they are not always necessary. Building an estate plan involves much more than just covering for all scenarios or asking a lawyer to arbitrarily use half a dozen different tools and provisions. Some estates require a complex approach, while other estates are much simpler. In any case, our living trust lawyers are focused on efficiently achieving your goals.
An inefficient estate plan is more than a waste of money or time, it can be a tremendous obstacle in the path of your family after you pass away. It can present headache after headache at a time of grief and solemn sorrow. For instance, executing an overly complex trust could create additional steps for families in administering the trust. Such steps could involve the need to hire a CPA, a tax professionals, or an attorney to help administer, all without creating enough benefit to warrant such costs. Sometimes, simpler is better.
With a well-made estate plan, you can ensure that you leave behind a clear and smooth transition for your property and your wealth, removing ambiguity and giving your family more time and space to deal with their emotions rather than their finances. Our living trust lawyers will make this possible for you. Not through templates and adapted forms, but through unique and tailored work, carefully crafted documents, and a thorough and comprehensive estate plan that covers exactly what's needed.
Estate plans, despite their terminal nature, are not meant to be set in stone upon their first iteration. They evolve and change as circumstances change – and for many, updating an estate plan is necessary at least once a year, and once for every important family event or change. Not only will our living trust lawyers help you set up all documentation and craft the right estate plan for you, but they will advise you on when to come back for changes and adjustments, and what to consider for the future.
GUIDING YOU THROUGH THE PROBATE PROCESS
Probate is not always necessary, but there are times when you must take probate into account as part of your estate plan. Our probate attorneys can help prepare your family for the challenges ahead, letting you pick an administrator, helping you set up a timeline for your probate process, and helping your family better prepare for the probate process.
Even when using a trust, there are cases when some assets are missed and do not pass through the trust document. In this case, a special pour-over will may help you transfer these assets into your/a trust after you pass away, without having to amend or add onto your trust document. Amending a trust can be difficult if not given enough time, and a pour-over will if implemented correctly can act as a safety measure to protect most of your estate.
Regardless of how big your estate is and whether or whether not your estate needs a trust or a probate process, our probate attorneys will help you create an estate plan that best suits your circumstances and specific needs.
