What Is Estate Planning and Can I Do It Myself?

Estate planning is a term describing the process of preparing for your future. Most likely, you have already become involved in the process by getting life insurance, insuring your home, having a joint checking account, or having your home in both your name and your spouse's.

In the legal profession, we interview clients to determine their goals and then make recommendations as to how to secure those desires. We discuss and recommend the legal instruments that can be employed. Additionally, we design a plan that binds future actions and sets out your intentions so that they can be legally enforced, or provide that combination of control and instruction that make you comfortable.

When Should I Have a Will?

Wills are utilized to express your intentions and directions regarding your property and family subsequent to your decease. Consequently, wills are important once you own property or have a family.

Younger people generally put off generating this instrument because they associate the document with their death, which won't happen for many years. However, realistically, we all know young people who have expired prematurely and left their families with many unanswered questions. Consequently, if you have thought about a will, now is the time to make one.

What Should Be in a Basic Estate Plan?

A basic estate plan should address matters both now and in the future. It should exhibit thought and consideration over issues of health care and finances while you are alive, as well as upon or after your demise.

Commonly, an estate plan will utilize a homestead, health care proxy, durable power of attorney, designation of a guardian, and creation of a will. The plan may also utilize one or more types of trusts, some of which provide for minor children and family, or control of real estate, or as a means of diminishing the impact of capital gains taxes or, more commonly, estate taxes.
