Nobody can predict the future and with that comes a level of uncertainty that no one wants to face. Estate planning is crucial as it gives you control over your assets not only after death but during your life as well. Regardless of the size of your estate, it is vital to prepare an estate plan.
In the state of California if you have assets valued at more then $150,000, upon your passing your family will have to go to Probate Court. Don’t force them to have to deal with the unnecessary time and large fees of Probate Court. The cost of Probate is usually TEN to TWENTY TIMES the cost of preparing an estate plan. Put that money in your pocket instead of the pocket of others.
By planning ahead, you will be guaranteeing that you minimize the legal fees and taxes for your heirs. Our assistance with your estate planning will help you reduce estate taxes, avoid the emotional and financial effects of probate and protect your assets against in-home or nursing care costs. Additionally, if you become incapacitated, advance directives become very important in the handling of your affairs.
