Everyone, not just the wealthy or elderly, should make an estate plan to protect their assets and loved ones.
No one wants to think about death. Having an estate plan in place helps assure that assets go to the people you choose and helps to minimize the tax burden for your heirs.
An estate plan manages and protects your assets while you are alive and transfers and distributes them upon your death or incapacity. It also can specify who will care for your minor children in the event of your death.
A complete estate plan prepared by Courteous Law includes a will, revocable trust and durable health care and financial powers of attorney.
