Who Needs An Estate Plan? Everyone.

If you own assets of any kind — a home, investments, life insurance, or other possessions — then you have an “estate” and you need an estate plan. Your estate plan designates who will inherit your property and ensures that your children and loved ones will be taken care of in accordance with your wishes.

If you have minor children or are planning to have children, an estate plan is essential. If you or your spouse could one day need long-term care or special needs planning, an estate plan can provide a strategy that will help you protect your assets. Having a quality estate plan is one of the best things you can do for yourself and the ones you love.

Estate Planning Services

Don’t know the difference between a will and a trust? Not sure if you need elder law planning or special needs assistance? You’re not alone. During your initial consultation, your TuckerAllen estate planning attorney will discuss your needs and explain our services. We’ll ask questions like: Do you own a home? Do you have children? Does someone in your family have special needs or require long-term care? Your answers will clarify which estate planning service is right for you. There’s no preparation necessary.

What to Do When You’re the Trustee or Executor of a Loved One’s Estate

If you’ve been designated as the trustee or executor of an estate for a loved one who has died, or if you have concerns about the diminished capacity of a family member, you may be unsure about what to do and where to begin to fulfill your responsibilities. TuckerAllen can guide you through the process – or provide more support by assuming many of the responsibilities for you.

Did You Know?

If your loved one has a will or does not have any estate plan whatsoever, their estate must go through probate court. A probate judge ensures that assets are properly transferred to the rightful beneficiaries. This process typically takes about one year to complete and will require the assistance of an attorney. If your loved one has a properly funded trust, you avoid the probate process.
