Do I Need a Will?
The most basic component of an estate plan is a will. This document states your wishes to be carried out upon your death. In your will, you can express where you want your assets to go and to whom, name guardians for your minor children, and much more.
A will is for everyone — not just the wealthy, and not just for older adults. From single individuals and remarried individuals to parents with small children and parents with grown children, wills are for everyone. Working with a lawyer is key to make sure that your will is tailored to meet your needs.
Do I Need a Trust?
A trust is a powerful estate planning tool that allows an individual to place property into it, thereby protecting that property from the process of probate and transferring it to designated beneficiaries.
There are many types of trusts available. Choosing the trust (or trusts) that is right for you is a discussion to be had with an estate planning attorney.
We can help you establish any type of trust, including but not limited to:
- Inter-vivos trusts
- AB trusts
- Special needs trusts
- Revocable living trusts
