The Year is Coming to an End. Don’t Put Off Your Estate Plan Any Longer

A new year is right around the corner! Perhaps during 2015 your New Year resolution was to finalize your estate planning. If you have not done so already, why wait when you can start off the new year with the peace of mind that you have this task completed?

Preparing your estate planning will allow you to designate specific beneficiaries for all your assets, appoint trustees to manage your assets in case of death or incapacity, appoint guardians over your minor children, and appoint agents for your Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Property. In addition, if you’ve recently increased your assets; tied the knot; started a business; refinanced your home; had more children; considered changing your Trustees or the guardians for your children, you may be due for a Restatement or Amendment to your Trust, a Codicil to your Will, or just a new deed. These are all important aspects of your and your family’s life. Therefore, why wait until the New Year?

Here at Chauvel & Glatt we know that your assets are important to you and that you want to ensure that your property will be distributed according to your wishes. We value our work and want to assist you in the best way we can. To learn how our attorneys can assist you with your estate planning or other legal needs, contact us today.
