Wealth Transfer Planning Attorney in Sacramento
Leaving Behind a Lasting Legacy
When you have worked hard your entire life to accumulate assets and acquire property, a good effort should be made at not only shielding your assets from creditors and lawsuits, but creating a comprehensive estate plan that will ensure that the fruits of your labor are enjoyed by those that matter most to you after you pass. When given the choice, and you do have a choice, wouldn't you prefer to have a say in who gets your assets and when after you die?
The only way to have control over how your assets are transferred is to engage in the estate planning process. If you fail to establish an estate plan, then the state will determine how your assets are distributed, which may not be the way you would have wanted. The state doesn't determine one beneficiary's need over another's, nor is it concerned about complex or strained family relationships. By putting an estate plan in place, you are in charge of who benefits from your generosity and not the state. Keep in mind that it's important to update your beneficiary designations whenever there is a marriage, divorce, or you experience a birth or death in the family.
Estate planning is an ongoing process which involves planning for the distribution of your assets after you die (wealth transfer planning), but it also involves planning for incapacity and naming a guardian for minor children in case something were to happen to you. It can also plan for long term care and Medicaid to the extent that you won't have to sacrifice your life savings to pay for these expenses.
Estate planning is for adults of all ages, especially because no one can entirely predict accidents or illness and people can die at any age. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can have peace of mind knowing that you did the right thing by planning for the inevitable.
