All About Estate Planning
An Estate Plan is a legal document describing how you would like your assets handled upon your death and how you want your loved ones to handle financial and health decisions if illness or an accident leaves you unable to communicate your healthcare and financial wishes.
Estate Planning does not only explain who gets your possessions when you are gone; it also works to protect your loved ones if you become disabled and cannot manage your legal affairs. A good Estate Plan will keep your estate out of probate and protect the inheritance of your loved ones and your descendants.
The Siegel Law Group’s South Florida Estate Planning Attorneys will help to design a personalized Estate Plan customized to meet your specific financial goals, while protecting your loved ones and their future.
Many parts contribute to an effective Estate Plan. An Estate Planning Attorney will provide legal guidance for your Will, and they will also help you understand and design your Healthcare Advance Directive, Surrogate Healthcare Designations, Revocable Living Trusts, Living Wills, and Powers of Attorney. Estate Planning Attorneys may also assist with Special Needs Planning and HIPAA Authorizations and Releases and Medicare Planning if they are needed.
An Estate Plan will provide your loved ones with answers to important questions if you should die or cannot communicate your needs and desires. All Estate Plans are unique and distinct, but there are a few key questions that an Estate Plan needs to answer. They include:
- Who will be the guardian of your minor children?
- Who will receive your house and property?
- What happens to your pets?
- Who makes medical decisions for you if you cannot communicate your needs and wishes?
What Is Included In An Estate Plan?
Most people think of Wills when they think of Estate Planning, but as noted above, many other considerations must be addressed. Other considerations may include the setting up of Trust Accounts for beneficiaries; establishing guardians for minors; assigning an executor to your Estate; setting up or updating beneficiaries for life insurance policies, IRAs, and retirement plans; planning funeral arrangements; establishing charitable donations to offset taxes and setting up Power of Attorney.
Estate Planning will help keep your hard-earned assets in your family after death. Assets can easily be taken away from heirs if legal protections are not in place. Barry D. Siegel, an experienced South Florida Estate Planning Attorney, with nearly 20 years of generational wealth management experience, wants to ensure your holdings stay with your family.
