An Estate Planning Attorney, also known as a probate lawyer or estate law attorney, is highly experienced and qualified legal professionals with a comprehensive understanding of federal and state laws that affect your estate. Estate planning, or the management of your last will and testament, is the process of making sure your wishes are properly recorded in a legally binding Will or trust document. This legally binding document serves as the most important asset in your lifetime, and the best interests of your family are always protected. If your will is not established following your death, your loved ones will have no one to claim your inheritance. There are several ways to establish a Will, including oral or written instructions, a durable power of attorney or a durable living trust. It is important for an estate planning attorney to understand the difference between a revocable and irrevocable trust. A revocable trust is legally binding while an irrevocable trust is not. Once a person dies, a revocable trust becomes available allowing relatives to access the deceased's assets without being questioned. Irrevocable trusts differ from revocable trusts in that they do not become available unless the testator's will has been executed. Therefore, they are very difficult to execute. Although an irrevocable trust can be contested by relatives, the estate plan of the decedent generally protects his or her estate assets. Estate planning is a time-consuming process and attorneys are often very busy. As such, it can be difficult for them to take on cases out of their area of expertise. For this reason, you may want to consider working with an experienced family law firm or trust planner. These experienced professionals will evaluate your needs, obtain your detailed information about your assets and other people who are involved in the case, and recommend the best course of action. Some individuals may feel reluctant to work with an estate planning attorney because they believe that attorneys are always too involved with legalities.
While some family law firms do have legal staff, most of them handle estates as part of their core business. Additionally, in the event that a relative passes away without a will, the court system will likely ask the attorney to handle the case. In many cases, the attorney will be able to write a personal will that can be presented to beneficiaries. This type of trust does not have to be as complex as a will because it simply requires that there be an objective written document that names the individuals who will inherit the estate. When you work with an estate planning attorney, you can expect him or her to draft an asset protection trust. This form of legal entity helps to provide financial security to loved ones, particularly during the span of a long illness or any catastrophic event. Your attorney can also help you determine which tax laws apply to your situation so that you can minimize your taxes. For example, if you anticipate the need for tax deductions for your use of life insurance, he or she can help you determine which tax bracket you fall into so that you can take advantage of these deductions. An estate planning attorney can be a wonderful ally during the course of your lifetime. With his or her expertise, he or she can help you determine how best to distribute your resources and assets while also protecting your family from harmful circumstances. Even if you do not have an estate plan, an attorney can often review it for you and give you advice on how to go about it. The attorney may also be able to make sure that your plan complies with applicable state and federal tax laws.
