With Voyant Legal, you will work with an attorney who assists with all aspects of the estate planning process, such as setting up wills, trusts, power of attorney, advance health care directives and various other key documents. Your attorney helps you preserve your legacy and protect the best interests of you and your loved ones — both now and in the years to come.
No two estate plans are alike.
The approach you take with your estate planning process depends on a variety of factors, including your level of wealth, how you would like to distribute your assets and property and your specific wishes on financial and health care matters. Your plan may include the following items:
- Will: This is the most basic estate planning document. It outlines your wishes for distributing your wealth to your loved ones after your death. Your will may also provide directions for the care of any minor children you have.
- Living trust: Through this estate planning mechanism, you place a certain amount of your assets in a trust while you are still alive, with those assets going to your beneficiaries after you pass away. A living trust is a great way to avoid unnecessary estate taxes and pass on your wealth to your family members and friends as you see fit.
- Living will: Also known as an advance health care directive, a living will outlines in detail your wishes as they relate to the medical care you receive in a variety of circumstances. If you become incapacitated and are no longer able to make these decisions yourself, your living will give your executor clear direction on how to proceed.
- Power of attorney: A durable power of attorney arrangement names another person to make key financial decisions on your behalf if you are no longer able to due to a serious illness or travel outside the country. When this arrangement is durable, it only goes into effect in certain situations and you may revoke it at any time.
When setting up your estate plan, it’s important to understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. The attorney you consult should create a strategy based on your specific needs and desires, and should be able to answer all your questions quickly and thoroughly.
