The Estate Planning Process

Your estate encompasses all of the money and property you own at the time of your death. As its name suggests, estate planning allows you to create a detailed plan for the future of your estate. With the proper legal documents in place, you’ll be able to specifically outline how you want your assets distributed after you pass away.

Common Elements of an Estate Plan

Most estate plans address aspects such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney. As your attorneys, we’ll get to know you and your specific circumstances, and advise you on the elements you may want to add to your estate plan.

Wills

Your will, sometimes called a “last will and testament,” should address not only who should receive your assets, but also who should administer your estate. By choosing a responsible person to be your will’s executor, you can have peace of mind knowing your estate will be in good hands.

Trusts

Setting up trusts is a smart way to simplify the transfer of assets and help your loved ones avoid the difficulties of probate. A trust allows you to assign a third party — a trustee — to hold and direct assets on behalf of your beneficiaries. Upon your death, those assets will be distributed to their intended beneficiaries without the need for probate.

There are a variety of trusts you can create, including living trusts, special needs trusts, revocable trusts, and irrevocable trusts. Contact us at Marvel & Emche, P.A. today to discuss which type of trust is right for you.

Powers of Attorney

In the event that you become incapacitated, your family will likely be incredibly overwhelmed. Appointing trustworthy powers of attorney can help you save them from even more stress.

A power of attorney has the legal right to make decisions on your behalf when you cannot make them for yourself. You can assign different powers of attorney to different things, such as your health care and your finances. Tell us when you’re ready to get started.
