What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning can be a different process for everyone. Essentially, it is putting together legally enforceable documents that express your intentions and give other people you choose to carry out your intentions. An estate plan often consists of wills, trusts, a power of attorney, a healthcare power of attorney, and other legal documents that vary depending on your particular circumstances.
Do I Need an Estate Plan?
People often believe that because they don’t have many assets, they probably don’t need a will or a trust. Nearly everyone can benefit from having an estate plan. If you have children under the age of 18, you need your intentions of who will take care of them clearly stated in a legally enforceable document. Even if you do not have property or do not have someone you want to leave your belongings to, you may have a specific organization or charity that you want to give your things to. This can be beneficial to you during your life. Speak with a Sacramento estate planning attorney for more information.
