Everyone needs a will. That is simply conventional wisdom. Yet, does a will adequately provide for all of the details for the end of life? The short answer is “No”. It may take more than a single, simple document to make sure that your wishes and desires are carried out. Our firm has the experience in helping you establish security for your life-long investments. Whether you’re assets are modest or large, they are all important.
The Need for Planning
Making sure that your assets are managed in the way that you intend after your death can by difficult when only a will is in place. By using a trust, you can arrange for the management of your assets after death or during incapacity. It also alleviates the burden of your loved ones dealing with complex administrative, legal, and investment issues during already difficult times. A trust has several other advantages, including avoiding the delays and expense of probate, maintaining privacy, saving estate taxes, and ensuring that your assets continue to be managed properly.
Someone else has already planned what to do with your assets!
The IRS has set up a taxing structure to take money out of your estate. This is commonly called the “Death Tax”. Also, Michigan has already planned, through probate laws, how to disperse your estate if you fail to leave a will. Don’t let the IRS and State determine what happens to your investments. Let us help you maintain control over your estate! You can establish now whether your family, friends or cherished organization will be the beneficiaries of your estate.
Our goal is to help you secure the future of your investments.
Do you need to create, update or amend your living trust, guardianship or will? We can help. Whether you have a will or a living trust, we will help you get every thing in order to help your executor carry through with your wishes. When it comes to your life, a good plan is not optional. Live your life with the comfort and satisfaction that you control your assets, even what happens to them after death. Elder law involves planning for the future and gives you the power to direct your life as you wish. Disability, Alzheimers or a catastrophic injury and illness often robs people of the ability to control life at those states. Control who will be your legal voice and create a plan so that your children and the state will do as you wish!
