Have you had any of the following legal documentations prepared to protect yourself and the ones you love?
Last Will & Testament
Power of Attorney
These documents are critical in defining and directing what will happen to your estate when you die, or in appointing who will make decisions if you cannot. Do not wait to have these documents created to protect your spouse, kids, and your assets. If you already have a trust, we can do a free review of what has actually been placed in the trust. The number one reason trusts fail is that they are not “funded.” In other words, your assets were not transferred to the trust. When this doesn’t happen, your trust fails and your estate goes to probate. A fully funded trust helps your loved ones avoid probate, which can cost 5-10% of the estate’s value.
