Practical Estate Planning Legal Guidance
The assumption that estate planning is only for the very wealthy is not true. If you own any property, you have an “estate,” and any assets will need to be transferred to your heirs. But an estate plan does more than simply distribute property to your heirs.
Focus On Your Goals
It can help you plan for your retirement, make decisions and transfers while there is adequate time and no crisis to cloud judgment, and sharpen your focus when you have time to adjust your savings or planning. At Parr Price Law, PS, our attorney can help you review your situation and plan for the future. Estate planning is personal. No two plans in Washington are the same because no two families are alike. We will take the time to understand your goals and then create the legal instruments necessary to achieve them.
The Proper Estate Planning Tools For You
Our lawyer will assemble the right combination of documents for your family, including:
- Health care directives and advance health care directives
- Revocable and irrevocable trusts
- Powers of attorney
- Charitable gifts
The Information You Need For A Comprehensive Estate Plan
We are meticulous when creating estate plans. We can include family cabins and vacation homes to be inherited by survivors or placed into a family trust, establish a pet trust that sees to the needs of a beloved pet, and prepare for any contingency faced by blended and nontraditional families. It’s never too early to begin this process.
Unfortunately, sometimes it can be too late. After you die, intestate laws govern distributions and a judge or your heirs are at the mercy of those laws. The best gift you can leave your family and heirs is thorough preparation that spares them the stress and potential conflict that can result from a lack of planning.
No matter where you may be in the estate planning process or the stage your family is at, we can help. Call our Olympia office at 360-529-5523 or use our online form to discuss your estate planning options and work to streamline probate.
