I recently attended an in person free workshop at the Estate Law Center. I wanted to learn more about trusts and what to do an what not to do in regards to setting up my estate. The information provided was fantastic and the room was packed with attendees. Holly is extremely knowledgeable first and foremost. She did a tremendous job of keeping the attendees engaged. The information was presented in a very organized fashion and questions and feedback were recommended. I will definitely being hiring the Estate Law Center in Alpharetta to review my will as well as set all of my accounts in the form of trust to ensure that my estate is properly protected

We wanted to say thank you to Holly and her team (with a shout out to Esther) for their knowledge, professionalism and assistance in helping us with our estate planning. Not only are we very pleased with the end result, but we came away feeling that Holly really cared about us as human beings vs. "just another client". Definitely a five star family Estate Law Center!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Estate planning is the process of arranging for the transfer of a person’s assets after they pass away. It involves creating a plan for the distribution of assets, such as property, investments, and other possessions, to family members, friends, or charitable organizations. Estate planning also involves making arrangements for end-of-life care, appointing a guardian for minor children, and minimizing tax liabilities.

The primary goal of estate planning is to ensure that the transfer of assets is done smoothly and efficiently, without unnecessary legal complications or delays. Estate planning also helps to ensure that the wishes of the deceased are carried out, and that their assets are distributed in a way that reflects their values and priorities.

Common estate planning tools include wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and advanced directives for healthcare. Working with an experienced estate planning attorney can help ensure that all necessary documents are in place and that your wishes are properly communicated to your loved ones.

Starting the estate planning process can seem overwhelming, but with a bit of preparation and guidance, you can create an effective plan that ensures your wishes are carried out. Here are some steps to get started:

  1. Make a list of your assets: Create a list of all your assets, including real estate, investments, retirement accounts, insurance policies, and personal property.
  2. Identify your beneficiaries: Determine who you want to inherit your assets. You may want to consider factors such as age, financial situation, and whether they have any special needs.
  3. Choose an executor or trustee: You’ll need to appoint someone to manage your estate after your death. This person will be responsible for distributing your assets and settling your debts.
  4. Consider tax implications: Estate planning can involve complex tax issues, so it’s important to consult with a financial advisor or attorney who specializes in estate planning.
  5. Create a will: A will is a legal document that outlines how you want your assets to be distributed after your death. It also allows you to name a guardian for any minor children.
  6. Consider a trust: Depending on your circumstances, a trust may be a useful tool to manage your assets and distribute them to your beneficiaries.
  7. Review and update your plan: It’s important to review and update your estate plan periodically to ensure it continues to reflect your wishes and any changes in your financial or personal circumstances.

Working with an experienced estate planning attorney can help ensure that your plan is comprehensive and tailored to your specific needs and goals.

It’s a good idea to start estate planning as soon as possible, regardless of your age or current health status. Estate planning involves creating a plan for the management and distribution of your assets after you pass away, as well as planning for your own potential incapacity. Here are a few reasons why it’s important to start estate planning sooner rather than later:

  1. Unexpected events: No one knows when unexpected events can occur that may result in incapacity or death. Estate planning can help you be prepared for the unexpected by having a plan in place for your assets and care.
  2. Protect your assets: Estate planning can help protect your assets from being lost to creditors or other parties. It can also help minimize taxes that may be imposed on your estate.
  3. Protect your loved ones: Estate planning can help protect your loved ones from potential conflicts over your assets, and ensure that they are provided for according to your wishes.
  4. Peace of mind: Having an estate plan in place can give you peace of mind, knowing that you have taken steps to protect your loved ones and your assets.

In short, it’s never too early to start estate planning. The earlier you start, the more time you have to refine your plan and make any necessary changes as your life circumstances change.
