What Is an Estate Plan?
Estate planning is much more than a list of who gets what when you are
gone. Estate planning is the process of organizing one’s assets,
liabilities, and legacy to best fit your needs during your life and for
future generations. Therefore, estate plans deal not only with who gets
what after your gone, but who is responsible for making decisions about
your estate and personal health in the event of your incapacity and death.
Estate plans differ for every person as every individuals’ life goals
differ. However, a smart and strategic estate plan can help you reach
your life goals, effectively manage your assets, avoid tax liabilities,
and set your family on the road to success. Whether you need a will and
power of attorney or desire a more comprehensive estate plan, The Diamond
Law Group has the experience to meet your goals.
Why You Need an Estate Plan
An estate plan is necessary to make the probate process smoother and to
ensure that the Court knows what your wishes are in the event of your
incapacity or death.
Probate is the process in which one’s assets are distributed and
last wishes are attended too under the supervision of the Probate Court.
These tasks are usually accomplished by an executor who is appointed by
the Courts. The executor ensures execution of your expressed wishes, orderly
and fair winding up of the estate, and impartiality to beneficiaries.
Without an estate plan, your estate will be distributed according to the
judgement of the Court, depriving you of the opportunity to direct how
your legacy is passed on.
However, our attorney knows how to formulate individualized estate plans
to meet the unique needs of each individual, so their wishes are carried
out and probate is avoided. By providing an executor of your choice a
plan for how your estate is to be distributed, a good estate plan avoids
the probate process and allows you the comfort of knowing your wishes
will be done.
