The process of estate planning protects yourself and your loved ones. It allows you to ensure that your property will go to the people you want, in the way you want, and when you want. Careful planning permits you money on taxes, court costs, and attorneys' fees. Your family will not be burdened with the red tape and grief of probating your estate after your death. Estate planning tools include Wills, living wills, advance health care directives, powers of attorney, insurance policies, and accounts with beneficiary designations.
As a leading Connecticut estate planning lawyer, Attorney Hank Weatherby helps individuals manage their assets. No matter how large or small your estate, whatever your age, you should consult an attorney to put your wishes into legal documents. An estate planning attorney will help you draft a will, assign power of attorney, and name an executor of your will. Appointing a trusted individual to make important medical decisions on your behalf is part of the planning process. How your estate is divided and distributed to your heirs after your death should be your decision. Another benefit of estate planning avoids unnecessary taxation. Putting your assets into a trust keeps proceedings private and avoids the probate process all together.
