Four documents every adult should have:

  1. A Trust that keeps your property from going through probate.

  2. A Will that disperses your assets, pays your debts, and appoints a guardian for your children.

  3. A Durable Power of Attorney that designates another person to handle your financial affairs if you are unable to do so.

  4. An Advance Health Care Directive that gives another person the ability to make health care decisions on your behalf. It also includes a living will, which instructs the hospital as to your wishes if you are in a permanent vegetative state.

Estate planning

Prepare for tomorrow... today.

One of the greatest gifts you can leave your loved ones is a professionally prepared, comprehensive estate plan. Planning is vital to ensure preservation of assets built over a lifetime and avoidance of unnecessary court procedures, taxes and bureaucracy.

An estate plan offers many benefits while you are still alive. When you set up a trust with accompanying financial and medical powers of attorney, you protect:

  • Your finances — by designating a trusted family member, friend, or professional to act on your behalf as your financial agent if you are ever disabled or incapacitated
  • Your health — by designating a trusted person to act on your behalf as your medical agent if you are hospitalized and unable, because of a coma or other extreme physical condition, to make medical decisions for yourself
  • Your money — by avoiding the need for expensive court proceedings to appoint a guardian or conservator to care for you or handle your finances
  • Your assetsby owning them through legal entities that provide protection from unexpected lawsuits and catastrophic financial setbacks
  • Your peace of mind — knowing that those who will act on your behalf are trusted persons that you have chosen, instead of others chosen by a probate judge

A comprehensive estate plan combines a will, a trust, and other related legal documents. Having one in place can make things much easier for your survivors when you are gone. During this difficult time, your thoughtfully prepared plan will:

  • Provide a roadmap for your survivors to follow and minimize disagreements between them
  • Ensure your property is distributed according to your wishes
  • Name guardians for your minor children
  • Offer financial management for family members or other survivors who need assistance
  • Save money by reducing or eliminating probate costs, estate and inheritance taxes
  • Guarantee your estate is administered by persons you chose for their financial management skills and good judgment
  • Protect your survivors’ inheritance from unexpected lawsuits and catastrophic financial setbacks
