What is estate planning?
Estate planning is preparing the preservation, management, and distribution of one’s assets in the event of incapacitation or death.
Do I need to update my will?
Your will should be evaluated or updated after major life changes such as a birth, a death, or a change in marital status.
What is a trust?
A trust is a legal entity established to hold assets and provide instructions to be implemented upon a specified framework of events.
Do I need a will or a trust?
Simpler situations with fewer parties and assets that are easily identified may be suited for a will. More complex situations may require a trust. An attorney that specializes in estate planning can help you identify which is right for you.
Will my family have to pay estate taxes?
If your net worth at the time of death is above a certain threshold, determined by the IRS, your estate will be subject to federal estate taxes. If it is below the threshold, your estate will not be subject to federal estate taxes.
