Basic Estate Planning Packages
The goal of a good estate plan is to account for all the changes that occur
years after a person’s passing. This could include people getting
older, property changing hands, and
A basic estate plan consists of the following items:
- Last Will and Testament
- Advance Health Care Directive
- Durable Power of Attorney
Each of the above documents serves a specific purpose in the overall estate
plan. Packages start at $899 for an individual and $1500 for couples,
regardless of marriage. A Last Will and Testament is the document that
will be tailored to your specific wishes for the distribution of your
real and personal property, your funeral arrangements, and the handling
of your debts, if any.
An Advance Health Care Directive is a back-up plan that your doctor will
use in case you are suffering from an irreversible condition or are terminally
ill. It allows you to choose whether or not you would like to have life-sustaining
medical care or if you would prefer to be provided with just the support
to give you comfort and allow you to die naturally.
A Durable Power of Attorney is a document that allows you to designate
an individual to make important legal decisions on your behalf should
you be unable to do so because you are incapacitated in any way.
Do I Really Need an Estate Plan?
Yes. There are many reasons to have an estate plan in place. Typically,
the most important is to ensure that your assets will be distributed according
to your wishes, rather than the asset distribution used by the state.
An estate plan will save your heirs a great deal of money, and provide
a greater likelihood that they will receive the assets you wish to leave
them and avoid legal fees.
