LEGAL TIP OF THE WEEK: Do You Know If Your Estate Plan Is In Order?
DO YOU KNOW…
…if your estate plan is in order?
The estate planning you build today could be your final gift to those you love most — proactive execution of final wishes and goals that spare your survivors the time, expense, energy and inconvenience of costly, lengthy probate proceedings or litigation.
At Marine View Law & Escrow, our estate planning attorneys are experienced in the preparation of an effective, thoughtful estate plan, and they can help you with originating and updating any plan that provides for your Washington family’s future financial security.
We help you prepare for the distribution of your assets and property by learning as much as we can about your financial situation. We evaluate a variety of strategies and alternatives for effective asset transfer, including the use of wills and trusts, conveyances and inter vivos agreements. We can also discuss the benefits of lifetime gifting and charitable contributions with you. With careful consideration of the tax and financial consequences of each option, as well as the challenges to your heirs, such as debts, we are dedicated to recommending the best approach to meet your objectives.
Our lawyers can recommend a number of useful estate planning tools such as:
- Wills and living wills
- Revocable and irrevocable trusts
- Living trusts
- Gift, life insurance, special needs and charitable trusts
- Durable and medical powers of attorney
- Advance health care directives
- Community property agreements
Using these and other important estate documents, Marine View Law & Escrow can craft a blend of strategies that provide for your loved ones after you are gone, or in the event you are incapacitated. We listen to you and learn from you, from the very start of our work together. We translate that knowledge to formulation of an estate plan you can be proud of, one that effectively reflects your intentions.
