Estate Planning

Estate Planning - Probate Lawyers Directory

Estate Planning involves the preparation of a Will, the appointment an executor of that Will, whether a Power of Attorney is required and the establishment a discretionary trust.

Advance Estate Planning, good advice, and the proper assembly of important documents will ensure that upon your death, everything will be handled efficiently.

Your choice of an executor is a crucial step in your estate Planning. Your executor must be willing and able to handle your estate after your death, and above all, trustworthy.

A probate lawyer will also be able to advise you on the establishment of a trust during the Estate Planning process. This could prove an important step in making sure your dependents don't receive an unwelcome tax demand.

The following issues should be considered during the Estate Planning process:

  • asset protection
  • probate avoidance
  • avoidance, minimisation and deferral of tax liabilities
  • planning for illness or incapacity
  • selection of guardians, personal representatives and other fiduciaries
  • formation of family limited partnerships and other business entities
  • succession strategies for family businesses

Estate Planning will provide you with the comfort of knowing that your wishes will be carried out should anything happen to you in the future. Proper Estate Planning doesn't only benefit you, it also helps your family members, who otherwise may face the burden of making choices for you without your input.
