    Have a question?

    If so, you may want to consider a Living Trust since each property will likely be subject to some form of probate.

    Key estate planning documents include a Last Will and Testament, which outlines how your assets should be distributed, and a Living Will or Advance Healthcare Directive, specifying your medical treatment preferences. Additionally, a Durable Power of Attorney designates someone to manage your financial affairs if you become incapacitated, while a Healthcare Power of Attorney appoints a representative to make medical decisions on your behalf. Trusts are also commonly used to manage and distribute assets outside of probate.

    Everyone can benefit from estate planning, regardless of their wealth or age. Whether you have substantial assets, minor children, or specific wishes for your healthcare, having a well-crafted estate plan ensures your desires are carried out and provides for your loved ones in times of need.

    If you pass away without an estate plan, your assets will be distributed according to your state's laws of intestacy. This may not align with your preferences and can result in delays, disputes, and additional costs. Moreover, without a plan, decisions regarding your healthcare and financial matters may be left to the court.

    Estate plans should be reviewed periodically to ensure they reflect your current circumstances and intentions. Life events such as marriages, divorces, births, deaths, changes in financial status, and relocations are common triggers for updates. As a general rule, consider revisiting your plan every three to five years.

    Estate planning can help minimize tax liabilities for your estate and beneficiaries. Federal and state estate taxes may apply, depending on the total value of your estate. Proper planning can include strategies such as gifting, trusts, and other tax-efficient mechanisms to reduce the tax burden and maximize the assets passed on to your heirs. It's essential to work with a knowledgeable estate planning attorney or advisor to navigate tax implications effectively.
