Estate Planning: Wills & Trusts

Did you know that you leave an estate when you die whether you’re in Muskegon, Michigan or elsewhere? Any assets that you own that are solely in your name, unless everyone else titled on the asset has also passed away, qualifies as an estate. A will alone is not enough to protect that estate from being probated. Except for specific circumstances, when you die your estate must be probate in order to pass your assets down to your loved ones, even if you have a will.

Probate court is very costly and time consuming. There are a few ways to avoid having to deal with it, but all of these must be completed before you pass away. By planning ahead, you can save your loved ones from the unbelievable amount of time and expense it takes, and you are able to have a level of control on how things are done after you die.

Have you ever thought about what happens if you became incapacitated? Who would pay your bill if you are alive but unable to pay them yourself? Who would make medical decisions for you if you are unable to? With a little pre-planning, you would be able to choose who you want to make these decisions and allow your loved ones to know your end-of-life wishes.
