The importance of estate planning
It is important for Californians to consider how they want to handle their estates and then to make certain that they have the proper tools in place. If you are thinking about your own estate plan, it is important that you understand the different types of documents that may best protect your interests and those of your family.
The foundation of good estate plans is comprised of wills and trusts. These allow you to make certain that your assets will be transferred according to your wishes. These documents are important for everyone to have, regardless of how large or small their estates might be.
If your estate is sizable, you may have to have a more extensive plan to help to protect it from taxes and other problems. You'll want to draft the documents in such a way that the potential for challenges will be minimized. It is important for you not to forget your pets when you are thinking about how to handle your estate. It is possible to create a trust to make certain that your pets will continue to receive the care that they need after you pass away.
