For your fist appointment, it is alright to speak in generalities about your assets so you can get some idea of your options. As the process moves forward, however, your attorney will need an accurate snapshot of your assets and liabilities. So start to gathering important information such as your banking and investment account statements, life insurance policies, information about real property you own and other items of value such as collections, antiques, artwork, and jewelry.

Next, start thinking about these question: Who do you want to inherit from you? Your spouse or Children? Siblings? A charitable organization? Who will manage the distribution of your estate when you are gone? Who will help you with your financial or medical decisions as you age?

Your attorney can assist with all of these questions, but you should be ready to discuss these topics.

Lastly, call an attorney. While creating an estate plan is easy, the under lying rules governing estates, trusts, and taxes are very complex. Preparing an estate plan is not a DYI project. Get help from a professional. An experienced estate planning attorney can ensure you have a hand-crafted estate plan tailored to your specific needs. More importantly, a qualified attorney can help identify issues that may not be spotted by an untrained eye.

Give is a call and we will be happy to get your estate plan started!
