  • The Basics of Estate Planning: Avoiding Unintended Consequences

Some of the benefits of estate planning include:

  • 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 you or the other parent die before the children reach the age of 18.
  • Eliminate Tax Burdens for Your Heirs: Clients often want to draft an estate plan so they can transfer assets to heirs with the smallest possible tax burden.
  • Reduce Family Arguments: If you want your family members to avoid arguments over your assets and property after you die, then you need to carefully choose who controls your estate.
