When should I start my estate planning?
Now. To put it simply, it is never too early to start estate planning, and there are certain estate planning objectives that you should immediately get squared away no matter what your circumstances. A Will is principal among them. Without at least a will in place, the ultimate decision about how your estate will be distributed will be made by the government. Yet, with the proper Will and/or Trust in place, you can control how the estate is distributed and even avoid probate.
Additionally, any individual or couple with minor children should absolutely consider a guardianship and trust for their children. Nobody can predict their own death, but your child’s well being is too important to leave to chance. Our estate planning attorneys understand these issues well and will make sure your estate plan will address the issues most important to you.
Estate Tax and Wealth Transfer Planning
For wealthier clients, the Estate tax is a chief concern to preserve their wealth for future generations. We use the full range of tools available to handle your estate planning needs to maximum advantage under the Tax Code, which minimize or completely avoid estate taxes, gift taxes, income taxes, and generation skipping transfer taxes.
While staying up to date on the most recent Federal Estate tax laws, our attorneys also build flexibility into our clients’ estate plans to reduce potential adverse affects of future legislation. We can analyze the various tax factors affecting your situation and develop the right plan for you that accomplishes your goals and maximizes the assets that your loved ones receive.
