Which is why understanding how to protect your family from crippling legal costs and public court battles after you pass is so important.
We are talking about Estate Planning, and it can be complex and confusing.
So many different terms (some in latin?!), definitions, and documents that seem to do similar, yet really different things.
Searching for answers is frustrating and time consuming.
If you’re like most people looking for information on Wills, Trusts, and Estate Plans, you have spent (or are currently spending) A LOT of your time searching the internet for answers to questions like:
"I have heard horror stories about Probate Court devastating families, forcing them to sell their property just to pay the legal bills…"
"Does an online, “do-it-yourself” Will really protect me, or should I contact an attorney?"
"I don’t want the government deciding who will raise my children if my spouse and I both pass away unexpectedly…"
"How can I specify who will raise my kids? "
"What’s better, a Will or a Trust?"
"Living Trust or Irrevocable Trust? What’s the difference and how do they protect my family and property? "
"What does the Estate Planning process look like and how much does it cost? "
All important questions...
Unfortunately, accurate answers are very hard to find with all of the confusing information on the internet.
Many complex state laws cover Wills, Trusts, and Estate Plans, so the laws change based on what state you live in.
