As 2017 is coming to a close, now is the perfect time to bring your last wishes up to date. Life changes every day and we are too busy with each day’s demands to consider what would happen if you had only a Will or nothing in place.
When you have no estate plan, you are basically leaving all decisions up to the State Government. A Will sounds good, and you get to choose what eventually happens with your estate wishes, but if you have only a Will, or nothing at all, your assets will go to PROBATE.
PROBATE is costly and takes many months to process.
In the past, living trusts were used by the wealthy to avoid taxes. Now, such trusts are best utilized by middle income families to prevent their estate going into probate. Therefore, they are much less costly and quickly processed on death usually without Court interference.
So many people make New Year’s resolutions, but most people don’t keep them. Make this the year you make a New Year’s resolution and keep it. Decide to protect your love ones from probate in the event that something unexpected happens to you.
As a motivation to make and keep your New Year’s resolution, Court Forms Plus will assist you by offering $50 off of a trust package that includes the following: Declaration of Trust, Pour Over Will, Power of Attorney for Health Care, General/Durable Power of Attorney, Assignment of Assets, Certification of Trust, and one deed with assessor forms.
