Estate PlanningEstate Planning

Estate planning is extremely critical not only to protect yourself and your assets, the things you’ve worked your whole life for, but also for your family’s benefit. Unfortunately, most people don’t see this as such a priority. In fact, only about 4 out of 10 Americans have a Will or Living Trust in place. The reason? People simply say they just, “haven’t got around to it” while others claim they, “don’t have enough assets to leave anyone.”

Planning for our death or incapacitation is not on the top of our to-do lists. We tend to live our lives with the hope that we will not die anytime soon. However, we know that death is inevitable and we just don’t know what each day will bring. Therefore, we also know how important this inevitability is to plan for. Of course, good estate planning will give you the peace of mind you need knowing that yourself and your loved ones will be properly provided for. Whether you have a large or small estate, you need to be sure that your wishes are followed upon your death or incapacitation.

There are a lot of misconceptions about estate planning and because of these misconceptions, a lot of people don’t realize the tremendous benefits that come about because of it. Having a plan in place can lift an enormous burden off of you and your loved ones.

Estate planning can be broken down like this. It is the accumulation of assets, or earnings, the preservation of those assets, management of those assets upon disability or incapacitation, and the distribution of those assets when you die. It is pretty straight forward, however, there are some challenges that must be taken into consideration and those challenges are probate, death taxes, and guardianship.  

Probate

Whether expected or completely out of the blue, the death of a loved one can be a very traumatic experience for the entire family. Many people have difficulty learning how to move on with life without that beloved family member, much less deal with the confusing and time-consuming legal issues that arise upon the death of an individual.

Probate is the legal process by which the probate court assumes authority over the estate or assets of someone who has died. The court identifies assets, identifies who is in charge of the assets, supervises payments of debts to creditors, pays taxes and probate fees, and oversees the distribution of the remainder of the assets to the beneficiaries and or heirs.
