Custom Estate Planning Services in Wauwatosa and Milwaukee
Life is unpredictable. Would your loved ones be taken care of if something happened to you tomorrow? Would they get everything they need?
For many, estate planning is simply insurance that their family will be set up properly for the future. But if something unforeseen does happen, the burden it takes off of the family during a difficult time is immeasurable.
It’s essential to think of estate planning not as something you do for yourself – but for your loved ones. From your obvious assets to your family heirlooms, you want to make sure everything goes to the proper people if something happens to you.
Estate planning also gives your family goals for the future and sets a plan that everyone can follow to help ensure future success. It’s never too early to make a plan for the future of your spouse, children, and other family members.
Estate Planning services offered in Wauwatosa and the greater Milwaukee area include:
- Wills – Having a will is one of the essential things you can do to help ensure that your valuables are transferred properly upon your death. Having at least a simple will helps avoid a lengthy court battle and disagreements between family members on the ownership of your assets.
- Trusts – Unlike a will, a trust goes into effect while you are still alive, making you an active part of the process and allowing for changes as elements of your life and estate change. A revocable trust in Wauwatosa is an important part of the estate planning process. A proper trust may also allow you to avoid the costly probate process.
- Powers of Attorney – No one assumes they will come to the point of incapacitation and be unable to make decisions on their healthcare and finances. But when the time comes, you will want to ensure that you have selected the individual to handle your affairs and the terms of those affairs.
