Estate Planning Lawyers | Southern California
A well designed estate plan may be underrated but it is actually very appreciated when it comes down to it. Your personalized estate plan details specific instructions to your family related to your intentions. This removes any doubt and potential animosity among your loved ones. Your quality estate plan can also help your family appreciate and respect your wishes in the event you become incapacitated. The best estate plans may also protect your assets from estate taxes, property tax increases and other potential tax issues.
Plan For The Future
The best estate plans involve the generation of legal documents, such as trusts, wills and powers of attorney. It is a process that requires patience and attention to details. Every scenario must be considered, in order to plan for contingencies. The end result is well worth it for the peace of mind it offers, knowing that your family and loved ones will be OK.
The Probate Process
The other half of an estate plan is the execution of it. The best estate plans have a designated person as the executor or administrator. This person is entrusted with navigating the entire estate through the probate process. The administrator of a trust usually has many important responsibilities. In fact, failing to fulfill these duties could end in a lawsuit. It is a good idea for executors and trust administrators to contact an attorney to assist with the performance of all tasks quickly, efficiently and effectively.
