THE BASICS OF ESTATE PLANNING
WHAT IS ESTATE PLANNING?
Estate planning is an important and necessary step that every person should take. You need an estate plan to protect your assets and family’s needs in the event of your incapacity or death. When you work with our New Jersey estate planning lawyer, we will work with you to create an estate plan that works for your unique needs. If you already have a will or estate plan, keep in mind that you should periodically review all of your estate planning documents. Tax laws are constantly changing, and your family circumstances may change, too.
WHAT DOES ESTATE PLANNING INCLUDE?
The first think you will need is a will. A will is a set of instructions for the distribution of your assets upon your death. You can protect your loved ones’ interests and help to ensure their financial security going forward. You can also ensure your family avoids interpersonal conflicts by establishing a clear plan for distributing tangible personal property and belongings, including family heirlooms. Additionally, if you own a family business, you should have a plan in place for succession of the business.
And estate plan should also include contingencies for guardianship or custody of any minor children, living wills, financial power of attorney and healthcare power of attorney.
Our experienced estate planning lawyers can assist you with crafting an effective estate plan that protects the interests of you and your loved ones.
