Estate Planning

A misplaced word or missing phrase in an estate planning instrument such as a will or trust can change the entire intent. Do-it-yourself, bargain-basement internet forms are not the answer, and can lead to very complicated issues later. Estate planning is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, as everyone’s circumstances are unique. To establish your estate planning goals and a strategy to meet them, it is extremely beneficial to have the assistance of an experienced estate planning attorney, such as the attorneys at Comitz Law.

Estate planning can present special challenges. For instance, a surviving partner of an unmarried couple doesn’t have the right to receive an intestate share. Under circumstances such as this, a cohabitation agreement can be utilized to fairly divide assets and property if and when the relationship comes to an end. For those with young children, grandchildren or special needs individuals, transferring assets to a person who may not be ready to manage financial affairs can be a risky endeavor. Comitz Law can rectify the situation by suggesting a spendthrift trust that determines how beneficiaries can use their inheritance over a period of time.

Preserving assets acquired during your lifetime is an important, but complex component of estate planning. Major life changes such as shifts in income, marriage status, children, property acquisition and more can dramatically alter any existing estate plans. Comitz Law highly recommends a review of your estate plan every three to five years to ensure that your hard-earned assets are distributed according to your wishes when the time comes.
