Powerful estate planning legal tools for the managing of your estate and the providing of care for your loved ones include:
- Trusts, durable powers of attorney, and healthcare living wills (advance medical directives). These instruments can ensure that your wishes regarding your assets and medical care are carried out in detail. Using these tools, you can appoint individuals responsible for overseeing the execution of your decisions.
- Guardianships. In legal guardianships, individuals use the probate courts to arrange for their care in the event that they become unable to care for themselves.
You’re Never Too Young to Make a Plan for Your Estate
Estate planning is not just for the middle-aged and elderly. Establishing a will at a younger age can ensure your children are cared for in case of a catastrophic emergency. Additionally, an estate plan can protect certain assets from becoming marital property if you create a plan before marriage. We can discuss your financial and familial needs and help you plan for the future of you and your family.
