What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is the process that allows individuals to choose how his or her property is to be managed and distributed upon his or her death or incapacitation. The estate planning process can be used to eliminate uncertainties in the probate process. A comprehensive estate plan allows individuals to opt-out of Louisiana’s default succession laws.
Three of the most essential tools used in estate planning are:
In order to eliminate or reduce any potential legal complications upon your passing, it is essential to have an attorney oversee the creation of your estate planning documents. This is especially true in Louisiana, where our inheritance laws are much more complicated and restrictive than other states.
Estate Planning Goals
At Grand Law Firm, we view Estate Planning as a highly personalized financial legal process. Every individual or couple begins the process with his, her, or their specific goals, needs, and concerns in mind. It is your Louisiana estate planning attorney’s job to assist you in accomplishing those goals, address those need and eliminate those concerns.
When you begin the estate planning process you will sit down with one of our experienced attorneys and discuss which legal documents will help you achieve your personal goals. Please take a few moments to learn more about our different estate planning options.
When Should You Get an Estate Plan?
Although planning an estate is associated with those who are wealthy, can benefit all people who have property or a family. Those who are of legal age should consider creating an estate plan. Once an individual turns 18, they are responsible for more things such as property, finances, family, and more.
Before creating an estate plan, you should consider your finances and any property you own with a spouse, after a divorce, or after remarrying. If you have children, it is important to think about who will become the legal guardian if you are no longer able to care for them, who will be responsible for their financial security, and who will inherit your money and property.
