Many people mistakenly think that there is a generic will or trust that you can use to establish an estate plan successfully. You are a unique individual with situations that are different from others; there is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ estate plan. You need someone who can help you plan for your future when you need help being taken care of and with your final wishes.
An estate plan includes more than a will or trust. It also includes a health care directive, power of attorney and guardianship of your children. Plus, your plan must also understand your retirement and life insurance plans. A generic estate plan will not usually take care of you.
We have worked with people in various situations at Estate and Probate Legal Group. Here are some examples that may help you:
We could show you many more situations, but hopefully, you understand that your estate plan needs special attention.
Please don’t believe that a ‘one size fits all’ estate plan is good for you. You may think that because you don’t have a lot to leave people, you don’t need to worry – but that is not true. When you die without the proper estate plan, you put undo financial and emotional stress on those left behind.
Working with an experienced estate planning attorney will help ensure your final wishes are carried out.
