What Does Estate Planning Include?

When prepared efficiently, a comprehensive estate plan that includes a will can help ensure that all of your wishes are taken into account and will be completed after you have passed or become incapacitated. This ensures that your family will not be forced to contend matters in court. It also ensures that your assets are passed on to your beneficiaries, according to your directions. Estate planning will be crucial following a divorce, for example, when the future of your assets and finances may be uncertain.

Estate planning may involve any of the following:

  • Creation of a will
  • Health care directives
  • Probate
  • Asset protections, such as in trusts
  • Estate administration

A will often includes the names of who should expect to receive certain assets and properties, and include any special instructions that fall outside the standard categories. Furthermore, the will also provides directions for handling medical care needs, in the event you become incapacitated and can no longer make these critical decisions on your own. You can also look into creating a trust to help manage how you wish your property to be handled. A trust can help to minimize some of the tax liability.

Have Questions? Contact Us!

As always, you can discuss matters with our Ventura estate planning attorney. We can begin the drafting process for your will and ensure that all aspects of your will and estate plan are in order. Ultimately, the goal is to reduce any extra expense or burdens on you or your family. If one were to pass on without leaving behind a will, the estate could be sent to probate court to oversee your personal affairs; and this is often not an ideal situation.
