Estate Planning

Personal Planning for Death or Disability

Estate planning includes choosing who will receive your assets in the event of your death (your "beneficiaries") and who will manage your estate. It may include establishing trusts for your beneficiaries if it would be unwise or problematic for them to receive money outright immediately for any reason. This may include their age or inability to handle money, creditor problems, or the possibility of disrupting public benefits they may receive. 

If you have minor children, you should choose the guardians who will care for them in the event of a sudden death or incapacity of both parents.

For many clients, estate planning also includes taking steps to minimize estate and/or inheritance taxes, sometimes for multiple generations.  

Incapacity planning allows you to choose who will make your financial and health care decisions if you are unable to care for yourself. Through durable financial powers of attorney and health care powers of attorney, including living will declarations (or "advance medical directives"), you can designate individuals to act for you and avoid the alternative of court-supervised guardianships and conservatorships.

Revocable living trusts can be used to avoid court-supervised probate, keeping your estate private after your death, and to allow for seamless management of your assets in the event of your incapacity.

The attorneys and staff at Ferguson Walton & Shansab, PLLC have extensive experience in this area. For more information, contact us.
