Estate Planning allows an individuals to control their property while they are alive and able, to take care of themselves and their loved ones if they should become disabled, and give what they have to whom they want, the way they want, and when they want, while saving every tax dollar, professional fee and court cost possible.
However, estate planning is much more than that:
• Provide instructions for your care if you should become disabled before you die.
• Name a guardian for your minor children.
• Provide for family members with any special needs without disrupting government benefits.
• Include life insurance to provide for your family at your death, disability income insurance to replace your income if you cannot work due to illness or injury, and long-
• Minimize taxes, court costs, and unnecessary legal fees.
• Be an ongoing process, not a one-
• Provide for the transfer of your business at your retirement, disability, or death.
• Include instructions for passing your values (religion, education, hard work, etc.) in addition to your valuables.
