Estate planning is not something you can do on your own. Instead, you need to hire a professional who is well-versed in it to help you out to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled, and your loved ones get what they deserve upon your passing.
Here’s some more information on why it’s a good idea to hire an estate planning lawyer.
They Will Give You Personalized Advice
Every estate is different. An estate planning lawyer will give you the best guidance based on your specific situation. For example, even though many people use a revocable trust, your lawyer might recommend an irrevocable trust if you have creditors coming after you and you need to protect your assets.
They Will Make Sure Documents Are Legal
Wouldn’t it be devastating if your family found out your estate planning documents were not legal once you already passed away? An estate planning lawyer will guarantee that your documents are indeed legal and will hold up in a court of law. For instance, you may need witnesses for some documents, which your lawyer could arrange for you.
They’ll Help You Avoid Expensive Taxes
Estate planning lawyers know how to avoid expensive taxes and the long and difficult process of probate. They will help you create documents that will not only save your estate money but your family members’ time and energy as well.
