Estate Planning |

Every person can benefit from contacting an estate planning attorney regardless of how simple or complex his or her estate happens to be. You can have peace of mind knowing your affairs are in order and that your family is protected if something happens to you. We understand all estates, assets, and family dynamics are different; so we will help you tailor a plan that is just right for you and your family.

Because we design our estate planning around your personal goals, life situation, and family, we ask that you consider a few questions before arriving for your free consultation. The more you think about these questions and supply detailed answers, the better we can help you.

| Do you have children who are dependent on you? If an unforeseen incident debilitated you, could they have the life they have now?

| What is the likelihood that one of your beneficiaries gets a divorce?

| To whom would you like your real estate to go? Do you know how to ensure they get all of it?

| Do you dislike the idea of a Probate Court overseeing your things and getting between your will and your family?

| How much tax would your children have to pay on your estate? Could they afford this while your assets move slowly through Probate Court?

| Have you arranged for anyone to inherit your firearms?

| Do you wish for a specific burial or to have someone perform a specific action with your remains (scattered ashes, buried in a specific plot, etc.)?

| Do you wish to leave an inheritance to a life partner who may or may not be recognized?

| Is your estate spread over multiple states or nations?

| Is your estate worth more than $5,000,000?

| Are you worried about your pet’s well-being if something happens to you?

| Do you have the income and retirement funds to cover the costs of a nursing home? Could you simultaneously afford long-term health care along with your family’s expenses?

| Are you worried about a beneficiary’s inability to handle money?

| Do you wish to give to a beneficiary whose taxes already weigh heavily on him or her?

| Do any of your beneficiaries struggle with disability, either physical or mental?

| Do you worry about who would make the decisions concerning your care if you get sick?

| How much money, if any, do you wish to give to charity?

| Would you like to leave assets to someone living with government assistance?

| Who will make all decisions pertaining to your financial and health situation if you were to get sick?

How Much Does Estate Planning Cost? |

We cover specific costs in your free consultation, but the short answer is that this varies a lot from situation to situation. You would be paying for our expertise and guidance, and some people’s estates need more guidance than others; some estates are trickier to manage than others. Your estate planning attorney can hash out the details once he has heard your situation at your free consultation. Rest assured, by the end of your free consultation you will know exactly what your estate plan will cost before you decide to proceed.
