Essential Estate Planning Tools

The types of legal documents used in your estate plan will depend on your unique circumstances. We will carefully review your financial situation and discuss your personal goals prior to recommending an estate plan. A comprehensive estate plan could include a:

  • Will – The foundation of most estate plans, a will specifies how your property and assets will be distributed upon your death and allows you to nominate a guardian for your minor children (and dependent adults).
  • Trusts – Trusts are financial tools used to immediately transfer assets to beneficiaries without going through probate. There are many types of trusts, including revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, and charitable trusts, among others.
  • Living Will – Also known as an advance directive, this is used to express your wishes regarding life-prolonging medical treatments for yourself in situations where you are terminally ill and unable to make your preferences known.
  • Powers of Attorney – These documents give legal power to a trusted agent to make medical and financial decisions for you if you are incapacitated.

Prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, and cohabitation agreements may also be used for estate planning purposes at times, and we are skilled in the preparation of these documents as well.
