When to Plan Your Estate
Estate planning can be done at any time during your life. It is never too soon. As long as you have assets to protect and pass on, even if you consider them relatively small, you should talk to a lawyer about drafting a will or another suitable estate planning instrument.
A good cue to create an estate plan is any life change. Have you recently gotten married? Have you brought a new child into the world? Did you just move to Minnesota? Did you recently go through a divorce? If you already have an estate plan, these are also good opportunities to contact us about updating your plan.
Estate Planning Components
The will is the cornerstone of the estate plan, and for many of our clients, that may be all the estate planning that is necessary. However, we encourage you to look at the bigger picture. An estate plan can do much more than dictate how your assets will be passed on. If created properly, it can also address end-of-life care and more. We can recommend powers of attorney and other estate planning components to benefit you.
If your goals for your family and your assets are more complex, you may want to consider creating a trust. We can create customized trusts designed to achieve unique objectives.
