Who Should Have an Estate Plan?

The answer to this question is simple: Everyone should have at least some form of an estate plan. Each plan, however, must be personalized to each family's unique situation, their needs and their goals. For example, you should speak to an estate planning attorney if:

  • You have minor children who will need guardians
  • You need to plan for the care of a disabled family member
  • You have a family owned business
  • You want to leave money to a favorite charity
  • You have property or financial assets you want to pass to heirs
  • You want to protect property from creditors
  • You want to save on estate administration costs or reduce estate taxes
  • You anticipate that there will be disputes among family members after your death

These are just few of the many reasons why you could benefit from speaking with an estate planning attorney.
