Estate planning is a process you should take prior to death to ensure your property and money are distributed as you would like. Without Estate Planning your loved ones may endure more complications and costs than necessary. Some tools used in Estate Planning include: Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and Living Wills.
No matter the size of your estate, having a will will allow you to choose who gets what in your estate. If you do not have a will, this decision is made by the courts.
Transferring your property to a trust prior to death will save your estate from having to pay estate taxes thus minimizing the tax liability.
A living will describes the type of medical treatment you wish for should you become unable to make those decisions.
