Estate Planning: Wills & Trusts

Do you know what an estate is? When you pass away, any assets that you own and are solely in your name (unless everyone else on the title has passed away) qualify as an estate. A will alone is not enough to protect this estate once you’ve passed. Without the necessary paperwork, your estate will be sent to probate court in order to pass your belongings down to your loved ones. It is only under special circumstances that your estate can avoid being probated.

Having to go through probate court is a very time consuming and costly process. While there are a few ways in which this can be avoided, all of these must be completed before you die in order to be affective.  Planning ahead can help your loved ones avoid this process and you are able to have a say in what happens after you die.

Do you know what would happen if you ever became incapacitated? Who would pay your bills for you if you were alive but unable to pay them yourself? Who would make medical decisions for you if you were unable to make them yourself? Planning ahead can help you answer those questions. You can choose who makes those types of decisions for you as well as let your loved ones know what your final wishes are.

We can help you explore the different options you have for filing bankruptcy, including the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. In multiple cases, you are able to keep your house and belongings after the bankruptcy. Don’t have a house? Filing bankruptcy can help you get that fresh start in order to start saving for the down payment rather than paying thousands of dollars on capitalized interest.

Are you being harassed with creditor phone calls? Filing bankruptcy will cause most of the calls to stop completely! You do not have to bow down to creditor demands, you have rights and options. Do you have too low of a credit score to get an auto loan, consolidation loan, or mortgage? Filing bankruptcy will help improve your credit score by eliminating your dischargeable debts! By filing bankruptcy, you will see a short-term reduction in your credit score; however, that can be increased within a few months because you’ve eliminated your dischargeable debts and delinquent payments!

Do you not qualify for bankruptcy or simply don’t want to file? No problem, we can still help! We are able to help with debt settlement and debt negotiation to help you pay off your debts without having to file bankruptcy.
