If you have any amount of wealth or any possessions you wish to pass on to your loved ones, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is never developing a plan to make sure it happens.
When people die intestate – without an estate plan or even a basic will – their state’s intestacy laws determine how their assets and property will be divided, often favoring spousal or parent-child relationships for inheritance. Not to mention, your loved ones may be forced to deal with a particularly complicated and costly probate process.
Most people would prefer a more detailed division of their estate that isn’t considered by intestacy laws, taking extended family or friends and charities into account. Having a trust or will in place with such instructions is the only way you can rest as ease knowing that your wealth will transfer according to your wishes.
There are also important implications for passing on without a business succession plan in place. By working with our estate law attorneys, we can help you address and mitigate any concerns you might have for what could happen to your estate in probate courts when you die.
