Estate planning has always been a legal and monetary obligation incorrectly set aside for much later in life than it ever should be. The truth is that a proper estate plan is something that can benefit you and your loved ones in life and death and it is not at all the morbid planning process many think it to be. What exactly is an estate plan? Estate planning is a legal term that refers to putting in place a strategy for what and how to disperse your property, plan for your family and much more when you pass. Estate Planning is essential because it includes and protects everything you own, no matter the size. Your estate is comprised of things like your: car, home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, digital and online accounts, personal possessions, and even pets. Also included in many estate plans are the most important things in your life- how to care and provide for minor children and other dependents.
No matter how large or how modest, everyone has an estate and something in common—you can’t take it with you when you die. The more assets and family you have, the more complex your estate plan will need to be. In addition to providing for your loved ones there are also tax and other fiscal upsides that come with a well-designed League City estate plan that you can benefit from immediately. The Law Offices of Erin C. Callahan will work 1:1 with you and your loved ones to make sure that your intentions are properly planned for and that your estate plan is designed to save you and your family money now and in the future.
If you own any real estate, have financial investments, have a family, or have recently changed the dynamics of your family then the time to make or revise your estate plan is NOW.
