Estate planning is a legal process which is targeted at assets preservation and succession. Through estate planning, you decide how your assets will be distributed at your death or during your life. When done properly, it can help save you and your estate thousands of dollars, and ensure your final wishes are carried out.
Proper estate planning will allow you to ensure you are able to control what happens to your assets now and after you’re gone. It is the best way to ensure your specific wishes are followed rather than relying on State Law of inheritance and intestate distribution. There are many benefits to estate planning including minimizing taxes, maintaining privacy, helping your loved ones avoid probate court, protecting your loved ones from creditors and much more.
