Estate Planning & Administration

Karissa / Anna

Estate and succession planning is critical to minimize the payment of taxes and fees by your estate and the stress your family could experience if you do not organize your affairs. Having properly drafted Powers of Attorney will ensure that if you ever become incapable of making important decisions about your property or your personal care, those decisions will be made by someone you choose, not the government or the Court.

Most of us know that we need a Will, yet many of us do not have one. Making an estate plan does not have to be expensive, complicated or stressful.

The decisions you make regarding your estate plan will determine how your property will be divided and what estate taxes will need to be paid after your passing. Be sure that your wishes are carried out by consulting with WARDS LAWYERSPC today.
