“The best way to predict the future is to create it,”

One thing is certain; we don’t have control over what the future holds when it comes to our lives, but there are always some things we can do now for the future of our families and the things we cherish. Creating an estate plan for your family is one of those things we can do to protect our families from unnecessary financial and emotional burdens, and to help ensure the people you love and care about will be provided for in the way that you want, and deserve.

Unfortunately, many people put off creating an estate plan for a variety of reasons, but the real truth is, now is the time to do so and not later. You never know what may happen tomorrow, and the cost of waiting to create your estate plan is certainly a much more expensive decision than it is to create one.

If the future of your family and your hard earned wealth are things that matter to you, then please contact us today, and schedule a free, no obligation appointment to discuss your estate with our Kanab estate planning lawyers and see how we can help.

What Does An Estate Plan Consist Of?

The ultimate objective of any estate plan is to leave your family protected, your assets protected, and to give you the comfort in knowing your family will have a safety net when you are no longer around to protect them. This is accomplished by clear directives contained in multiple legal documents created to achieve this end. The types of estate planning tools used to accomplish this are:

  • A will

At the heart of any estate plan is the will. This controls the distribution of your estate (property) at your death. It is the only document you can use to appoint permanent legal guardians for your minor children. A will designates the executor (personal representative) of your estate who will distribute your assets to those who will inherit from you (also named in the will).

  • A trust

One of the most versatile (and possibly most important) estate-planning tools available is the trust. Unlike the will, with a trust you can retain complete and strategic control over your assets while you are still alive, and distribute your assets to beneficiaries when you die without them having to go through probate. A trust is particularly useful in managing assets that may be susceptible to creditors or other claims, such as a business. It can minimize taxes and more!

  • A power of attorneyA power of attorney is a legal document that enables you to appoint another person to make decisions on your behalf if you lose the ability to make them yourself. It’s advisable to arrange for a power of attorney to be in place so that someone you know and trust can make the right decisions for you, should you lose the mental capacity to do it yourself.
  • A living willA healthcare directive (also known as a living will) is a legal document that names someone who you authorize to make healthcare decisions for you if you can no longer do so. You can also use the directive to spell out the kind of care you want or do not want to receive if you are incapacitated.
  • A guardianship designation

A guardianship directive is a document by which parents can appoint an individual to temporarily care for their minor children if they are unable to do so due illness, incapacity, or other reasons.

  • And more!
