Estate Planning and Settlement

Estate planning is the creation of a definite plan for managing your wealth while you're alive and distributing it after your death. Your estate includes all assets of any value that you own, including real property, business interests, investments, insurance proceeds, personal property and your personal effects. These assets may be owned by you alone or jointly with others.

Estate planning preserves and distributes your assets, both during your life and upon your death. An estate plan is the means by which your estate is passed on to your loved ones upon your death. It accomplishes your personal and family goals, eases the management of your financial and legal affairs and in some cases can minimize taxes.

Estate planning can be accomplished through a variety of methods, including:

Wills
Trusts
Powers of Attorney
Living Wills
Lifetime Gifting
Joint Ownership
Beneficiary Designations
Life Estates
Probate

Problems may arise when people don't coordinate all of these methods of passing on their estate. If you have well-drafted estate documents in place, you will ensure that your estate passes to whom you want, when you want, and is carried out in the manner you've chosen. Young & Young will help you to be aware of the many options that exist in estate planning, and create a plan that will meet the needs of you and your loved ones.
