What You Should Include in an Estate Plan

Whether it’s starting a business, starting a marriage, becoming a parent, or losing a parent, significant life changes can have a substantial impact on your perspective for the future. The necessity to figure out how to best protect your children, your spouse, your finances, and your legacy is obvious; however, constructing an estate plan for everything is not.

At the Voeller Law Firm, our mission is to help individuals plan for the future of their families and businesses. Each estate plan is different, and with our extensive experience and expert tools, we help clients safeguard what matters most to them. Common elements of an estate plan generally include:

  • A will that identifies who should receive the property included in the estate, including insurance policies, bank and investment policies, artwork, and other intimate property.
  • Appointed guardianships for any underage children who may be under your care at the time of your passing.
  • Trusts that can preserve assets and enable a simple transfer of assets with no need to take them through the probate process and no complications.
  • Powers of Attorney and an Advance Health Care Directive defining your preferences if you are incapacitated after an accident or near the end of your life.
  • Funeral arrangements and the payment preparations for them.
