What Is An Estate Plan?
An estate plan consists of everything you need to transfer your estate after you die. This includes money in your bank accounts, valuable jewelry, motor-vehicles, retirement accounts, and real estate properties you own. A strong estate plan also includes powers of attorney and advanced medical directives as a contingency for situations where you are incapacitated and unable to express your wishes. The primary goal of estate planning is to make sure your beneficiaries are able to obtain your property and pay the least amount possible in estate taxes.
Let Us Draft Your Final Wishes for Your Estate & Legacy
A Will is one of the most important components of your estate plan. This legal document gives you the opportunity to state what you would like to happen to your assets that you have worked your entire life to accumulate. A well-drafted estate plan also helps to prevent confusion among your family regarding how you want your affairs to be managed.
At E. Brown Legal, LLC, we understand that planning for what happens after death can be unpleasant. That is why we are here to provide you with the extensive legal resources you need to ensure your wishes are carried out and your assets are fairly distributed among your heirs and other beneficiaries of your estate.
What Do I Need to Include in My Will?
If you want your will to cover all of your interests after you die, then it needs to include the following:
- A personal representative or executor of your estate
- The names of the beneficiaries who will inherit your property
- The names of any alternate beneficiaries
- Detailed directions for how your personal assets should be divided
- Detailed directions for how debts, expenses, and taxes should be paid
- Any special instructions for maintaining real estate properties
