What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is the process of getting your affairs in order and expressly stating your intentions of what will happen to your assets when you are incapacitated or pass away. Estate plans can consist of trusts, wills, power of attorneys, healthcare power of attorneys, and other legally enforceable documents that determine who is in charge and what they are to do depending on the circumstances.
Do I Need an Estate Plan?
Many people think that because they do not have enough assets, they do not need an estate plan. Most everyone can benefit from an estate plan. If you have minor children, you definitely want your intentions of who will take care of them in legally enforceable writing. Even if you do not have someone you want to leave your property to, you may not want the state to have it. In that case, you may want to leave your property to a charitable organization which, in turn, could provide you with certain tax benefits during your life.
Do I Need a Sacramento Estate Planning Attorney?
You do not need a California estate planning attorney to create an estate plan. There are many online services that will let you create your own estate plan online. The problem with these sites is that you do not actually know if they are legally enforceable in Sacramento, California. They are also not as specific as you may desire.
