Do I Need an Estate Plan?
Anyone concerned about preserving family wealth needs an estate plan—but that does not mean that estate planning is only for the wealthy.
You should consider your estate plan if:
- You are pregnant or have children
- You have a special needs child who may need extra help or care
- You own a business
- You want to leave property to someone who is not related to you
- You want to support your house of worship or other charitable organization
- You want to control your medical decisions
- You want to avoid fights or rifts between loved ones
- You want to appoint another person to care for you and your estate if you become unable to do so
The State has provisions for your estate if you have made no plan, but that may not mirror your desires. Having an estate plan can ensure that your wishes and desires are carried out upon your death.
Speak with Our Firm Today
Ultimately, upon the death of the testator or trustor, an estate will have to be probated or administered, and we provide experienced assistance with those processes. Aside from the planning process, estate issues also sometimes require litigation. Attorneys at Reagan Melton & Delaney are trained and experienced to help ensure your family’s security and protect their future.
