Getting your estate in order needs to be high on your priority list. There are so many details beyond a will that need looking into. Many people come to our law office, Garton & Harris, wondering what to do. They believe that because they have few assets they may not need an estate plan. They also want a say in how those assets are handled by their heirs. Leaving a complete estate plan is such a gift to your children. They need to be grieving your loss, not fighting among themselves over who gets the china and who gets the car.
You can save on estate taxes if you plan wisely. We can guide you through this process because we have so much experience in this area. We will research your assets and your debt and ensure that what you want to happen after you are no longer here will occur. We help you explore the options that are available and do our best to carry them through. In the process, we can help you avoid conflicts later and save you and your heirs time, money and heartache later.
One of the areas that can be sticky is the will that you put in place. If you change your mind at the last minute, you don’t put it in writing and change your will and estate plan to match your wishes, your will can be executed upon your death the way it is laid out in the current will.
