Newaygo Michigan Wills & Trusts Attorney
Estate planning is one of the most important areas of law, yet it is often overlooked. Planning for your estate will not only give you peace of mind that that your property and health care wishes are honored, but an estate plan will also ensure that your loved ones are provided for in your absence.
A successful Estate Plan will consist of one or more of the following:
• Trust – Revocable, Spend Thrift, Special Needs for Children and/or Adults with Disabilities
• Health Care Power of Attorney or Living Will
• General Durable Power of Attorney – for financial matters
• Warranty Deed or Lady Bird Deed
• Guardianship and Conservatorship
An estate plan will ensure that your property is transferred only to the beneficiaries you have identified. Often times, an estate plan can also help you avoid potential tax liabilities upon transfer of your property. Additionally, depending on the size of your estate, a customized estate plan can often avoid probate allowing for quick and cost efficient transfers.
No matter the size of your estate, an estate plan is important for everyone and understanding your estate plan options can be complicated. The Attorneys at Smulders Law Office will help you understand your estate plan needs and customize an estate plan that is perfect for you and your loved ones.
