Estate planning is vital to your family’s financial well-being.  Creating a will and any necessary trusts can reduce your tax burden while providing for your family and ensuring that your wishes are carried out after your death.  However, Estate Planning is a tool that can benefit you during your lifetime as well.  When you understand what your estate contains, you can make a plan that includes your own retirement, and provide for your potential long-term care needs.  The Atlanta Probate Team can help you set priorities and put the essential documents in place.

Estate Planning is more than a collection of documents.  It is the way in which a legacy is passed to your family, and can include a business, a home, what remains of a nest egg, a classic car, a cherished art collection, or a family heirloom. Estate planning also specifies who makes healthcare and financial decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so.  Consider the importance of these decisions, and who you trust to make the right choice at the right time.  The primary goal of estate planning is to provide security, peace of mind, assurance and clarity.
