Every family can benefit from having a plan.
Many people think that estate planning is just about distributing assets after death and minimizing taxes. While this is an important part of it, a well-designed estate plan can help you accomplish much more. Estate planning is for everyone. It is not just for the wealthy. Every family can benefit from having a plan.
The benefit of having our office prepare an estate plan is clear. While an on-line template will is better than no plan at all, consider the value and the insight our office can provide to you. Having an attorney draft your estate plan can provide so much more than a cookie cutter will that is typically offered by on-line or pre-paid services. Every family has their own set of values. An on-line will that is designed as a one-sized fits all option cannot incorporate your values into your estate plan to pass on to your children. These types of services are designed for mass production and do not likely take into account your personal situation. Such options may even fail to address your healthcare wishes and who should handle your financial affairs if you were to become incapacitated. This could ultimately expose your family or loved ones to the probate court.
At Redmond & Hubbs, we take the time to get to know you. This is because every family is different and unique. What one family wants for their children may be different than what another family would like for their children. Maybe, a family has special considerations as to how their beneficiary would handle receiving their inheritance or is concerned over any number of other factors. We take all of this into consideration and incorporate it into your estate plan. In the end, you will have a customized estate plan tailored to the specific needs of your family.
Our firm also takes the time to educate you about your estate planning options and the benefits of having a plan in place that meets the needs of your specific situation. We do this so that you can make informed and the best decisions for your family. Having an estate plan can allow you to give what you want, when you want, to the people you want, in the manner you want rather than leaving such important decisions in the hands of the probate court. Estate planning gives you a peace of mind and makes things easier for your loved ones.
