Estate Planning ServicesDiscover The Benefits Of A Well-Crafted Estate Plan

Choosing to start estate planning can be one of the most valuable decisions you’ll ever make. From ensuring your assets are handled and distributed in a fashion that you would approve of to ensuring you have safeguards in place should tragedy hit, a sound established estate plan means you can have peace of mind and confidence while moving through all the chapters of life. Of course, it can be overwhelming to try setting up an estate plan alone – but that’s where the Law Office of Eloy Aguirre steps in.

Looking To Avoid Probate?

One of the main goals and considerations of estate planning is to avoid probate in California. Probate is a complex and lengthy process to determine where the deceased’s assets will go and how the remainder of the estate will be divided and distributed. This court process can be drawn out over potentially many months and can be quite costly. This is all not to mention the emotional distress many families face while trying to navigate it. However, suppose you are facing the prospect of probate in the near future or are already involved in it. In that case, it is crucial to work closely with a probate attorney with experience advocating for their clients at every step along the way.

Get Prepared For Life’s What-Ifs

Another crucial consideration when establishing an estate plan is planning for the tragic possibility of sudden incapacitation or a situation in which you may no longer be able to make legal decisions for yourself. This is why it is never too early to begin the estate planning process, but it can most certainly be too late. For example, suppose you are unable to make legal decisions due to a diminished state of mind or other incapacitating factors. In that case, it is too late to make any medical or financial decisions. Your estate plan will not be able to be updated.

However, suppose you act proactively and use resources like trusts and powers of attorney. In that case, your bases will be covered in the event of a tragedy, unexpected or otherwise. Additionally, if you make an estate plan early in life, you are always able to update it to reflect any changes to your wishes or current situation, with the exception of a few options available when building your estate plan.
