Preparing for the Future with Estate Planning
Although not pleasant to think about, death is inevitable for everyone. When you are adequately prepared, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved ones will be well cared for. J.P. Coleman Law LLC provides Robertsdale with the finest legal services. If this is your first venture into wills and trusts, an estate planning lawyer will take the time to sit down with you and explain your options.
Because wills and trusts are different, it is important for you to understand the limitations and advantages of each so you can make the right decision for your unique circumstances.
- Trust: This is an arrangement for the management of property after death, but can also be in effect during your lifetime if needed. Benefits include flexibility to use your assets however you see fit, avoidance of costly and lengthy probate procedures, assurance of adequate support for dependents, and protection from lawsuits or creditors.
- Will: This is a document that ensures your wishes are carried out after you die. It allows for the division of property and lets you choose a guardian for your children. A will can help save costs in taxes, administrative fees and probate. Without one, the court will decide what happens to your children and your property.
