What Are the Benefits of Estate Planning?

If you want your family and loved ones to be prepared for the future, then you need to start estate planning as soon as possible. There are multiple benefits of estate planning early, including:

  • Protect valuable assets
  • Avoid the hassle of the probate process
  • Specify wishes in case you are ever incapacitated
  • Make the transition to retirement simple
  • Immediately administer your property following your death
  • Decrease probate, tax, and other expenses
  • Ensure your children are taken care of
  • Accommodate special needs children

How to Avoid Probate

One strategy people use to avoid probate is by putting their assets into a trust. If your estate is worth $1 million, then it can cost as much as $50,000 to probate. It can also take over a year before the assets are distributed to heirs and beneficiaries. However, administering a trust with the same assets will cost as little as $2,500. The assets in the trust will also be distributed faster than if they went through probate.

At The Feldman Law Group, we know how to properly establish revocable living trusts so that our clients avoid or minimize probate. Our estate planning strategies can give you the capacity to manage your assets and distribute them as you see fit. We can also provide counsel regarding a variety of irrevocable trusts or other instruments to address other special needs you may have.
