5 Reasons To Call Now:
Peace of Mind:
Estate Planning is something that you do for your family so that you know they will be taken care of when you are gone and unable to care for them yourself. Hiring an experienced estate planning attorney will allow you to rest easier knowing your family is protected.
The only people who like probate are probate attorneys. Probate is time consuming, expensive, and public. Most families wish to avoid probate and can do so easily with the help of an experienced estate planner. Whether you use a trust or a less expensive method to avoid probate, the result will be the same: your family will be glad you planned to avoid probate.
What If You Become Disabled?
Without a plan in place, your family may need a Court to give them the ability to manage your finances and make decisions about your health care. This can create chaos and added expense when your family should be focused on your health.
You have paid enough in taxes during your life. Why allow the government to take additional taxes from your estate after you are gone? Having a properly structured plan will minimize estate and gift taxes.
We Don't Have a Crystal Ball
Unfortunately, we don't have a crystal ball that will tell us when our last day on earth will be. Procrastination is the number one reason for Probate. Whether it is being afraid to confront our own mortality or any other excuse we can make, if we wait too long to plan, our family may be left with a mess to clean up.
