Trusts, wills, and designated beneficiaries are the primary legal factors that determine how your loved one’s estate is distributed after death. However, it’s not as simple as just reading a will. Probate is the process by which a will is recognized by the court, allowing an individual’s estate to have claims filed against it by creditors and family members alike.

While planning for your own death is incredibly beneficial for your loved ones, that’s not the only advantage. Wills and trusts are legal instruments that can benefit individuals while they’re alive. “Living wills,” also known as advanced directives, provide instructions for managing the estate of someone who is no longer able to make decisions on their own behalf.
Specifically, living wills grants power of attorney to a designated decision-maker. This eases the heartache and ambiguity that often follows when a loved one suffers a mentally-incapacitating injury. In addition, these legal instruments can protect your assets from litigation and minimize your tax liability while you’re alive. This preserves your wealth throughout your lifetime and for generations beyond, providing prosperity and stability to your family long after you’re gone. Estate planning is an area of the law that can be adapted to your specific needs—you just need an experienced attorney to help.
