Benefits of Estate Planning

While there are many benefits of having a strong estate plan in place before your death, here are four reasons why you should consider creating an estate plan today:

  • Keep Your Assets Away from Unintended Beneficiaries: If you don’t have an estate plan when you pass away, then a probate judge will decide who your assets will be distributed to.
  • Protect Your Minor Children: If you have minor children, then you need to name a guardian in case both parents die before the children reach the age of 18. Without including this in your will, the courts will decide the guardians of your minor children after your death.
  • Eliminate Tax Burdens for Your Heirs: An important part of protecting your loved ones is also providing them with protection from the IRS. Your estate plan should transfer assets to your heirs and create the smallest tax burden as possible for them. Without a proper estate plan, your heirs can end up owing the IRS a substantial amount of money after you die.
  • Reduce Famly Arguments: If you want your family members to avoid arguments over your assets and property after your death, then you need to carefully choose who controls your estate and initiate their authority with the correct legal documents.

Estate planning isn't only for the wealthy, so even if you don’t have a pricey home, a padded retirement account, or valuable art to pass on, you should still meet with our legal team in Oregon to customize an etate plan for your personal goals.
