One of the most important yet underestimated activities you can complete during your lifetime is to develop your estate plan. Estate planning is the process of anticipating and planning for one’s affairs to be handled in ways consistent with your wishes during periods of incapacity and upon your death. Poorly planned estates can create conflicts among beneficiaries and can lead to increased tax liability on your assets. Effective estate planning allows you to maintain the highest value possible for your assets by preparing in advance for many of the issues, side effects fees and liabilities associated with estate administration.
At the Law Office of A. R. Hutchins, we work with our clients to plan for the distribution of assets in advance of their incapacity or death, advice relieving their family from issues associated with their loss and minimizing issues such as who is in charge and the burdens of the probate process, court fees and tax liabilities. Utilizing Last Wills and Testaments, Trusts and Power of Attorney documents we are able to identify the individuals that are authorized to act on your behalf and customize your asset distribution plan.
Most people have not contemplated their death or the affects it will have upon their family and friends. Mr. Hutchins has over 25 years experience in estate planning and can customize a plan for your assets that will provide security for the well-being of your family prior to your passing.
