What is estate planning?
Any adult can create an estate plan to avoid some of the problems presented in probate and guardianship proceedings.
Medical powers of attorney designate people to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so.
A Trust can empower your appointees to manage your property for your benefit. A Trust can also designate who receives your property after your death, eliminating the need for probate.
Special Needs Trusts and Supplemental Needs Trust can protect against the loss of often necessary support and benefits for persons with disabilities.
Sometimes disputes will still arise regarding property or medical issues. In that event the court is always available to resolve problems, of course. With the proper planning court involvement can be minimized or avoided completely. With proper planning, your designated representatives can better protect your assets.
