WHAT IS ESTATE PLANNING?

WHY IS ESTATE PLANNING IMPORTANT?

Although it can be a complicated and time-consuming process, estate planning is always worth the effort given that it can have a major effect on the wellbeing and financial security of your family and your estate. We are well-versed in the complexities of wills and probate, and strive to simplify estate planning for our clients and custom tailor a plan that is right for them.

 

WHAT DOES AN ESTATE PLAN LOOK LIKE?

 

An effective estate plan is comprised of distinct documents that can all work together to provide you and your family with the best level of security and care possible. Commonly utilized legal documents in an estate plan are Last Will and Testaments, Revocable Living Trusts, Healthcare Power of Attorney, General Durable Power of Attorney, Living Wills, Advance Medical Directives, and Irrevocable Trusts, amongst others.

You or your family may benefit from the assistance of an estate planning attorney who has experience in planning estates over the years. At Adam Rodrigues Law our goal is typically to plan things well enough that you can avoid the cost and hassle of probate after you are gone. In Tennessee probate court fees are typically at least 2000-2500 even for relatively simple estates. For many families they would prefer paying for all the benefits of trust planning or other complex planning up front to avoid this hassle for the family after they are gone. We are eager to assist with that process. 

However, we are also able and willing to help with the probate process if you find yourself in that position. Whatever your need is, schedule a free consultation with us today to see how we may be able to assist you in planning or handling your estate in the way that is best for you and for your loved ones.
