It’s never too early or too late to begin planning for the future. Through a carefully constructed estate plan, you can not only ensure that your decisions are made as though you were there to make them yourself, but also maximize your estate during life. Whether you are planning your estate for the first time or updating your last will and testament, trust, durable power of attorney, or advanced health care directive, the legal professionals at Barilari & Williams, LLP are prepared to guide you through the estate planning process and craft a solution that meets all of your needs.
A trust is another estate planning tool that can help you transfer benefits and property to your loved ones after passing. With specific state laws that govern how a trust can be set up, it's important to receive experienced guidance.
Establishing a power of attorney will enable you to appoint a trusted person to act as your agent and make decisions on your behalf, should you become incapacitated. Let the attorneys at Barilari & Williams, LLP handle every detail.
Creating a will can help protect you and your family to ensure that your exact wishes can be carried out once you pass. Drafting a will can help you name a guardian for your children, leave assets or property to beneficiaries, and more.
Sometimes referred to as a living will or power of attorney for health care, an advanced health care directive is used to specify your end-of-life choices and final resting wishes, to grant HIPAA a CMIA authority, and to designate an agent to make critical health care decisions when you are unable to do so yourself.
Although these tools are common to every estate, creating an effective estate plan requires a personalized analysis of your family dynamics and finances and should always be done with the help of knowledgeable attorneys. The professionals at Barilari & Williams, LLP have the experience you need to help you successfully plan for your future.
Through a carefully crafted estate plan, you can be certain that your family is protected long after you're gone. You can appoint a guardian to look after your children, set aside money for your loved ones, and pass along any important assets you own to chosen beneficiaries.
When you die without a trust or estate plan, California requires probate to divide and distribute your assets among your heirs. The probate process can be expensive with attorney fees, court costs, and added time. These expenses can be avoided through estate planning.
With a detailed estate plan, you can create a will and trust to distribute property and assets, appoint a trusted power of attorney to make decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated, and so much more. Throughout the process, you can trust that your exact wishes will be carried out.
