Comprehensive estate planning in California involves wills, family trusts, revocable trusts and irrevocable trusts. Without a will, your heirs have to go through an expensive and time-consuming probate process. A will streamlines this process for them, it ensures that your wishes are followed and it helps reduce sibling disputes.
Trusts give you unparalleled control and a lot of flexibility. You can set aside assets for minors, specific purposes — such as education — or heirs with special needs. Trusts can also help to reduce the tax burden on your heirs, keeping more money in the family.
Your estate plan may also need to address powers of attorney and health care directives. We can assist you in appointing a representative to manage your assets, sign legal documents if you are incapacitated or die or act on your behalf in making financial decisions. Further, we can assist you in creating a health care directive to instruct others concerning your medical care if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself.
