Proper estate planning provides an unmatched peace of mind for you and your family. Anyone at any stage of life can begin the process of estate planning. Amicus Law Firm knows estate planning. We are knowledgeable legal advisors in the area of estate planning and will consult you and your family on this important process. We will help you understand the nuances of estate planning law: this includes denoting the differences between a Last Will and Testament, living trusts, and other options you may have for asset distribution after your lifetime.
Why Should I Consider Estate Planning?
There are a variety of benefits associated with asset planning for past your lifetime. The peace of mind provided by a solid and comprehensive estate plan is reason enough to get started on creating a plan today. You and your family deserve the peace of mind and comfort that comes with knowing your estate is proactively secured and properly managed. Without a solid plan in place, the totality of your assets will be distributed by the state.
Life can be unpredictable. In the tragic event that you suffer an accident or injury and become unable to dictate your wishes, a pre-established estate plan will have your best interest already put in place. If you become incapacitated, your loved ones will not have to suffer the burden of deciding how to handle the situation retroactively. Proper estate planning can dictate your wishes for medical care should you suffer a debilitating injury or illness.
For example, if an individual with an estate plan is diagnosed with dementia and is unable to verbally communicate, the estate plan will have documented proof of that individual’s wishes for medical care as well as asset distribution after they pass. In the devastating and unexpected event that you are unable to manage your assets, you and your family will benefit from taking these proactive planning measures.
When you undergo estate planning, you can designate a specific individual to aid in handling your personal affairs. This individual can be a family member or friend who you trust with your best interests. This individual will handle your finances and possibly healthcare decisions if you are deemed unable to do so in the future.
