Frequently Asked Questions about Estate Planning
Do I need estate planning?
Estate planning law centers on establishing an effective plan or strategy in the event that something serious befalls you or your family. In the case of an emergency or death, having an established and comprehensive estate plan in place will protect your hard-earned assets and provide for your family after your passing. Without a legally sound estate plan, you have no control over the division of your assets or the allocation of your finances should you pass away. Estate plans usually consist of a
will, designating power of attorney, and in some cases, establishing a trust to control the distribution of assets. A
Fremont estate planning lawyer from The Singh Law Firm provides the personal legal representation you need to arrange these matters according to your wishes.
What are the benefits of estate planning?
In the past, only the wealthiest of individuals utilized estate planning laws to keep their acquired wealth within the family. While this might have been the case in the past, the benefits of estate planning extend to individuals at all levels of income. Without a will in place, the task of deciding who is entitled to what assets falls under the jurisdiction of the state. The state will decide how your assets should be divided amongst your heirs or beneficiaries. The main benefit of estate planning is that you have full control over what happens to your finances and assets when you die.
Why hire an estate planning lawyer?
