Estate Planning: Wills & Trusts

Did you know that you leave an estate when you die? Any assets that you own that are solely in your name, unless everyone else on the title has passed away, qualifies as an estate. An estate can be probated in order to pass your assets down to your loved ones. A will alone will not protect this estate from going to probate court if you don’t have a plan. Only under special circumstances can your estate be prevented from going to probate.

Probate court is a very timely and costly process. There are very few ways to prevent this from happening, all of which need to be completed before you pass. By planning ahead, you can save your loved ones from the unbelievable expense and amount of time it takes, and you are able to have control over how things are done after you’re gone.

Who would make medical decisions for you if you were unable to?
