The Estate Planning Process
The first step is to assess your current situation. What will happen if you or your spouse fall ill or lose mental capacity? Have you named a loved one to make health care decisions for you? Can anyone manage your property and pay your bills for you? What if you or your spouse die?
I can answer these questions for you in a free estate planning consultation. Once you know where you stand, you can make decisions about what you want to change.
Once you know your current situation, you can start taking action. I help by answering your legal questions and recommending a course of action.
As I guide you through the process, you make decisions and I draft the legal documents that will compose your estate plan.
After I’ve answered your questions and drafted your legal documents, it’s time to execute them. We do this in a meeting where we review your documents all at once, I answer any last-minute questions, and then I ensure each document is executed correctly.
