Estate_planning


Estate planning ensures that:

  • Final property wishes are
    honored
  • Health care issues
    are clarified and honored
  • Loved
    ones are provided for in your absence

Estate
planning resolves these (and other) legal questions when someone dies:

  • State of their financial
    affairs
  • Who gets what?
  • Guardianship of minor children
  • How much tax will need to be paid to transfer
    property
  • Appropriate
    funeral arrangements

Protect Your Assets

Asset Protection: What is asset protection? Asset protection
planning involves
figuring out and applying a lawful
series of techniques
that protect your assets
from claims of future creditors. The techniques are designed to deter
potential
creditors from going after you, and frustrate them if they do, generally
by
making it difficult or impossible for future creditors to grab hold of
your
assets or collect judgments against you.


In cases where
significant sums are involved, asset protection planning often
includes setting up a series of:

  • Trusts
  • Partnerships
  • Off-Shore
    Entities

Probate

Probate is a court involved process that
determines
how property, owned by someone who has passed away, will be distributed
to the
proper beneficiaries or heirs.

Avoiding Probate

The probate process is tedious and complicated

and can easily be avoided through proper estate planning and trusts.
