Most people think about their loved ones and ask themselves, “What happens when I’m not here?” Estate planning gives you the power to make a plan to decide who will receive your money and property after you die. In case of illness, it also helps you protect your assets by allowing you to choose the people you would like to be in charge of your money and property.
You can carry on with your estate planning through wills and trusts. Will is where your instructions are written down about who gets your money and property when you die and who you would like to distribute your money and property. Another way to manage your money is through a trust. There are many types of trusts, and the one you choose will depend on your needs and the needs of the people you want to share your money and property with.
Estate administration and probate are the court processes which allow people to distribute your money and property. It can be quite a complex process especially for someone who does not practice law. Having a legal counsel to help you with the process will certainly make your estate planning a breeze.
