Creating an Estate Plan seems simple enough. Just make a will leaving money for your spouse and the kids, and Aunt Sally’s antique wall clock to the local historical society. Easy? Well – no – it’s not that simple. Proper estate planning has many facets from protecting your assets from third parties, to selecting someone to make decisions in the event of your illness or disability and – yes – who will inherit your assets.
One of the most important gifts you can give your beneficiaries is avoiding probate. Probate is a court process that costs valuable time and money. If your estate plan has been set up with all proper legal documentation, it can be settled quickly and efficiently – with NO probate courts involved. The attorneys at Generations Law Group will listen to you, advise you and ensure that your estate is settled quickly and efficiently on behalf of those you love.
Do you have a child under age 18 or a member of your family who is special needs and unable to live on his or her own? Who will take care of your loved ones when you die? Now is the time to consider family or friends to be a legal guardian – to represent your wishes – when it comes to caring for your children or special needs individual. Guardianship and Conservatorship are critical roles that require not only your making a selection, but also the individual being willing to assume such an important role on your behalf.
