You might be asking, what is an estate plan and/or why would I need one? An Estate Plan is a set of documents that will establish and formalize your directions for what should happen with your property, your children, your assets, should you become unavailable, incapacitated or deceased. Wills and Trusts form the basis of your estate plan; but, there are additional less known documents that you will need to have to secure your peace of mind. In addition to a Will or Trust, your Estate Plan will always contain, at minimum, the following documents:
- HEALTH CARE PROXY
- HIPAA RELEASE
- LIVING WILL
- DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY
- ASSIGNMENT OF PERSONAL PROPERTY
- DISPOSITION INSTRUCTIONS
If you own a home, other property or if you have children, you do need a properly drafted Estate Plan. Contact one of our experienced attorneys today to set up your personalized Estate Plan.
