An excellent estate plan not only provides security for your loved ones, but gives you peace of mind in knowing that property will be passed on to those you wish to receive it.
One of the main purposes of estate planning is to avoid probate. When a person passes on without leaving a clear estate plan, or any estate plan at all, the issue of how property will be distributed must be resolved in what is often a difficult, stressful and emotional legal process known as probate. In the
absence of an estate plan, a discovery process will need to take place to discover the entirety of the
late individual’s property and assets, after which their estate will be divided and distributed to all relatives, heirs, and beneficiaries under the supervision of the court.
Probate can be extremely problematic, often because arguments are sparked over who should receive what. All it takes to avoid these complications is a comprehensive estate plan, which will express exactly how you want your property and assets distributed.
The key components of an estate plan include wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and medical directives. It only takes one small mistake, or even an ounce of ambiguity and your estate could end up in the wrong hands or be subject to probate.
