Estate Planning is Not Just for the Wealthy

Every adult needs some form of an estate plan to protect themselves if they become incapacitated, to protect their children and other family members, to determine how assets will be distributed to beneficiaries, to avoid costly probate proceedings through the courts, and to reduce potential conflict between family members.

An estate plan often includes some combination of the following documents:

  • Revocable Living Trust
  • Will
  • Durable Power of Attorney
  • Advance Health Care Directive
  • Guardian Nomination

The Law Office of Carol A. Fauerbach can assist you in creating an estate plan that addresses issues such as:

  • Designating individuals who can make financial and medical decisions if you become incapacitated
  • Designating how assets will be distributed after your death
  • Protecting minor children by designating a guardian
  • Providing for the management of assets on behalf of underage children
  • Preventing beneficiaries from losing their needs-based government benefits
  • Addressing family dynamics, including those involving blended families
  • Recommending options for managing your affairs or your estate if you don’t have close family and friends who can assist you or your beneficiaries if you become incapacitated or pass away
  • Providing for your pets if you become unable to care for them or pass away
