What is a good estate plan?

 

Each estate planning process is different depending on the preferences and assets of the individual setting it up. However, the following are some of the common elements of a sound estate plan:

  • Wills.  A will is used to transfer a person’s assets and property upon his or her death.  A will is a basic part of any estate plan.  All parents should have a will to designate a guardian for their minor children in the event of their death.  In most circumstances, your heirs must probate your will under the supervision of a probate court. 

 

  • Trusts. Transferring property and assets through a trust offers greater protection and confidentiality for you and your loved ones, and may also be less costly and provide more flexibility. Your heirs may also avoid a lengthy probate process in the event your trust is properly funded with your assets and property.  A trust can help protect the inheritances of your loved ones, including special needs beneficiaries.  In addition, a trust may provide for the support of your spouse while ensuring that your children, grandchildren and other beneficiaries receive the remaining assets after the death of your spouse.

  • Advance Health Care Directives. These documents are sometimes referred to as living wills or medical powers of attorney.  You give a loved one specific instructions about your medical treatment in case you can no longer make decisions for yourself due to incapacitation.   You also name a person to carry out your medical decisions on your behalf.  All adults should take the time to set up an advance health care directive.

 

  • Financial Power of Attorney. A financial power of attorney permits you to designate someone you trust to handle your financial affairs in case you cannot do so yourself due to a medical issue or if you leave the country for a period of time.
