Estate Planning Made Easy For You And Your Family
While many people understand the importance of an estate plan, few take the time to sit down with an estate planning lawyer. There are several elements of a successful estate plan, and they may be difficult to navigate alone:
- Powers of attorney
- Medical directives (or “living wills”)
- Guardianships and conservatorships
Smith, Lehberger & Bodie sits you down and walks you through each of these elements to ensure you, your assets and your family are all secure in the years to come. It’s easier than ever to have an estate plan in place — and when a crisis strikes, you’ll be happy you have one.
You Are Never Too Young To Set Up An Estate Plan
If you have assets and a family, you need an estate plan. When you die without a will, your assets will simply be distributed according to state laws, which hardly ever suit the needs of you and your family.
An estate plan is more than just a will. Make sure your estate plan has four essential elements.
Estate plans are about more than distributing assets, as well. These plans lay out your end-of-life wishes, and give decision-making responsibilities to those you trust in the case you are unable to make those decisions yourself. They ensure that when something bad happens to you, everyone in your family remains secure.
