The Importance of Estate Planning
According to a survey from Caring, a senior care resources company, only 4 in 10 American adults have a will or living trust. While 81% of those over the age of 72 years old do, in fact, have estate planning documents, younger people tend to brush the idea away as something they’ll eventually get done. However, it’s important for everyone to have their estate plans in order, even the younger generation, especially if they have children or own even a moderate amount of property or assets.
If you’re unsure about planning your estate, here are a few issues a compressive estate plan may address:
- Who will my property and assets go to if I die?
- Who will make decisions for me if I become disabled and can’t make them for myself?
- Who will manage my assets and personal affairs after I pass?
- Will my disabled child get everything they need if die?
- How can I minimize expenses, taxes, and delays in regards to my assets?
- Who will take care of my children if I pass unexpectedly?
- If my spouse takes over my estate after I die, will they divide my property without a will?
- Who will take care of my dog or cat?
In short, a solid estate plan can provide you with peace of mind knowing that your wishes are accounted for and that your family members and loved ones are protected.
Why Hire an Estate Planning Attorney?
When drafting and executing legal documents, having an attorney on your side can make a huge difference in the success and ease of establishing your estate plan. While you are not legally required to hire a lawyer to create a will in Nevada, doing so can help you plan and account for potential future issues. This is especially important if you believe your will might be contested or if you wish to disinherit an heir. Generally speaking, anything other than a very straightforward will benefits from the experience and knowledge of an estate planning lawyer.
Additionally, an attorney can assist you in the event that you wish to modify or change a will, trust, power of attorney, or similar document. Things change, and you may wish to alter your estate plan. Having an attorney guide you through this process can help ensure that your wishes are protected and that your best interests are kept at the forefront.
An attorney will also be able to guide you through the probate process, administration of a trust, or estate-related litigation. Such matters can be very complex, requiring various actions and documents. Your attorney will be able to ensure that you do not make any mistakes and can protect your rights throughout the process.
