Estate Planning

Broadly referring to a legal strategy and practice, performed by an estate planning lawyer, to help an individual plan how his/her assets shall be managed, transferred and/or distributed after death, estate planning can cover a wide range of strategic and legal proceedings such as creating a will, setting up trusts, or starting a probate proceeding. The goal of estate planning in the legal realm is, in other words, to examine how laws shall affect your estate after your death and explore what you could do to potentially mitigate undesired effects and create those desired ones. It is a source of reassurance that upon death what one has been trying to build for his/her life shall be continued or at least be of great value and benefit to those who truly belong to it.

How Estate Planning Lawyers Can Help Individuals?

Equipped  with a thorough knowledge and understanding of how one’s estate can be affected by laws upon his/her death, lawyers specializing in estate planning can assist and advise estate owners or individuals with power of attorney over a recently deceased person’s estate in any estate-related legal matters. 

Some of the most common estate-related legal services can include:

Probate

Considered one of the most important legal processes upon one’s death, probate can broadly refer to a general administering of a deceased person’s will or the estate of deceased person without a will. 

Typically beginning by examining whether or not a deceased person has left a legalized will, a probate proceeding is often essential when a deceased person’s remaining estate is of high value or there occurs any conflicts of interests among potential beneficiaries. 

Trusts

Generally referred to as an alternative way to distribute one’s estate, a trust is a legal written arrangement between you and a trustee whom you appoints to take ownership of your assets and manages them in the best interests of your beneficiaries. 

A trust can be set up during your lifetime, called, “a living time,” or be made effective by will after one’s death, known as “a testamentary trust.”

Will and Testament

Referring to a legal arrangement of one’s property is to be distributed after his/her death, a proper will is usually drafted by a lawyer experienced in estate planning.
