Estate And Trust Planning Services
Having an estate plan is fundamental for anyone who wants to plan ahead in order to safeguard their assets and be in control of how they will be distributed. There are numerous details and procedures that you may have to take care of when a loved one passes away, including disclaimer planning, portability advice, updating the survivor’s plan, and other considerations.
Strategic planning is extremely important in making sure every aspect of your estate plan has been dealt with, so your loved ones are able to focus on what they need after your death rather than having to worry about the intricacies of how your estate is being handled and divided. Considering all the different estate planning options and trusts can take up a lot of time and create a lot of stress for many clients.
Strategic planning and occasional updates to your trust and estate plan are key in ensuring your assets and wealth will be passed on in accordance with your wishes. At Boyd & Boyd, we have helped numerous families navigate the process by providing sound legal advice and information in plain terms to aid you in making the proper choices to create a strong estate plan.
Asset Protection and Elder Law Services
Elder Law is a sub-specialty of Estate Planning where attorneys focus on assisting clients with plans for retirement, long term care, incapacity planning, and other legal issues uniquely for seniors and people with disabilities. An Elder Law Attorney can provide information and guidance for a number of aspects related to aging. From helping with estate planning, wills, trusts, and asset protection to helping clients through decisions on health care planning, long-term care planning, financial representation, guardianship, and assisted living, an Elder Law Attorney’s main goal is addressing the needs and challenges that come from getting older. In addition to assisting customers with planning for their later years, our Elder Law Attorneys at Boyd & Boyd can also help families with many other aspects related to aging and asset protection.
Trustee and Executor Services
In a revocable trust, most creators often choose a relative as the trustee who will assume the responsibility of managing the trust. Many families additionally decide to add a co-trustee such as a lawyer who has a great deal of experience navigating the complexities of trusts. A Trust Attorney will have a more comprehensive understanding of state and federal laws that often affect your estate and can be more equipped to ensure that all aspects of the trust and related laws are understood and explained in layman’s terms. The same is true for those who have found themselves the executor on a loved one’s estate — an intimidating task that can benefit from guidance from a legal professional.
This takes the burden away from your trustee relative and guarantees that your wishes will be honored and your assets distributed the way you intended them to be. At Boyd & Boyd, we have decades of experience managing trusts and working with families to remove the overwhelming confusion that frequently comes along with many trust administration and estate administration concerns.
