Get Started On Estate Planning With Help From A Legal Professional

Many people avoid the topic of estate planning, whether because they feel uncomfortable about confronting their mortality or have misconceptions that it’s only relevant for the very wealthy.

However, taking a proactive approach to managing your assets and protecting your loved ones is a responsible act everyone should prioritize. Without the proper legal instruments and guidance in place, the distribution of your estate will ultimately be governed by state laws through the probate process rather than following your own wishes.

Let attorney Byron Acosta help you every step of the way with your estate plan. Whether you’re still trying to come up with a list of beneficiaries or debating the worth of establishing living wills, he is an estate planning attorney who will offer you experienced legal counsel.

Why Do You Need Estate Planning?

There are several reasons why you’d want to start estate planning as early as possible. They include:

  • Put into documentation your wishes on how to divide your assets: Without an estate plan, state laws will dictate how to divide your assets after you pass away.
  • Provide for your loved ones: Estate planning tools like trusts enable you to set up long-term financial support and protection for your spouse, children, grandchildren or other beneficiaries.
  • Minimize estate taxes and expenses: Strategies like credit shelter trusts, gifting and asset titling can help reduce estate taxes owed to preserve more of your wealth for your heirs.
  • Plan for incapacity: A comprehensive estate plan includes naming people you trust to handle your financial affairs, medical decisions and care through advance directives if you become incapacitated.

Most of all, estate planning gives you the comfort of knowing that your affairs are in order and that your loved ones will be provided for as intended.
