Frequently Asked Questions

Estate planning is the legal process of formally arranging for the transfer of a person’s property after death and includes a will and likely a trust, depending on the amount and type of assets owned by that person.

While there is no law requiring a will, a will is necessary in order to make a plan for the disbursement of your assets after you die. If a person dies without a will, they are considered intestate, and therefore their assets will be disbursed according to intestacy statutes. A will allows an individual to choose the allocation of property and finances. A will can also designate the person who will be responsible for executing your wishes: called an executor. Further, a will can designate who will be your guardian or guardian of your children in the event a person becomes incapacitated.

A trust is a mechanism for providing smooth transfer of assets upon your death.  Legal title to the assets placed in the trust will be titled in the name of the trust.  The trustee will be responsible for managing the assets of the trust.  One of the primary reasons to form a trust is to avoid probate.  A trust will usually provide for more economical and expeditious transfer of assets upon your death.

A power of attorney grants a specific individual the power to act as an agent should you become incapacitated. You can enumerate specific powers to your agent/attorney-in-fact. The two main powers of attorney are the health care power of attorney (governing healthcare in the event of incapacity) and the durable power of attorney (governing finances and business dealings in the event of incapacity).
