Legal Protection of Your (and Your Family’s) Financial Interests
It’s a sad fact of life that many families end up in legal battles with each other over a deceased loved one’s estate. While nothing can ensure a member of your family won’t “raise a ruckus” after your gone, an estate plan that explicitly spells out how your assets are to be divided, who should get what, and who should be in charge of the distribution makes it much more difficult for someone to create problems for the family members you want to make sure are provided for by your estate. An estate plan can include many components, including the division of real estate, savings, and the creation of a trust. When all your paperwork is in order, an estate plan is legally-binding, which means the courts can ensure your beneficiaries get what you left for them.
