We all need to plan for the future. Unfortunately, many people neglect to create an estate plan, thinking that estate planning is only for the elderly or for people far wealthier than themselves. As attorneys who have helped countless people throughout Northern California plan their estates, the lawyers of the Campbell Law Firm know that everyone needs an estate plan to protect themselves, their assets, and their families.
Whether you are young or old or have a large or a modest estate, you can ensure that, after you are gone, your wishes will be carried out and the interests of your loved ones will be protected.
What Does an Effective Estate Plan Do?
An effective estate plan that is developed with an experienced estate planning lawyer will accomplish the following and minimize the risk of conflicts in the future regarding your wishes:
- Distributes your estate according to your wishes. A judge does not know how you want your estate distributed. Only you do. A legally binding last will ensures your wishes are carried out.
- Protects the individual needs of your family. An effective estate plan ensures that your family will be taken care of after you are gone. By establishing guardianships and trusts for your family and children, including specialized trusts for children with special needs, you can protect your loved ones.
- Provides the maximum financial benefit to your heirs. Many financial considerations need addressing with any estate plan. There are many ways to avoid extravagant estate taxes. These may include the establishment of pre-death gifts and specialized tax planning for large estates.
- Protects you in case of a disability. Effective estate planning ensures that your wishes are made clear in the event of a disability. If you establish durable powers of attorney for healthcare and making your medical wishes known through physician directives, your interests will be served if you become incapacitated.
