The Importance of Having a Well-Drafted Estate Plan
Having a secure estate plan in place can help you achieve peace of mind. You can rely on the fact that when you pass away, your assets will be distributed to your loved ones, special charities or other beneficiaries just as you choose. (This can be accomplished through a revocable living trust, a last will and testament, and other specifically tailored documents.)
An estate plan can also help plan for the unfortunate circumstances of mental incapacity or physical disability. These situations typically call for a durable power of attorney, an advance health care directive. guardianship proceedings and certain forms of Special Needs Trusts. Black & Associates, P.C. can assist you with these and all your estate planning needs.
