Comprehensive Estate Plans To Protect Your Future

An estate plan comprises various legal and financial documents that name your beneficiaries, who you want to receive certain assets, your medical wishes and guardianship of minor children. While it is never easy to think about a time when you cannot take care of your family members, establishing a comprehensive estate plan can secure their futures.

Your estate plan may include:

  • A will
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Guardianship and/or Conservatorship appointments

If you pass away without a will, Alabama probate courts will decide who inherits certain assets based on state law. Unfortunately, these decisions often do not align with what you would have chosen. The best way to ensure the future you envision for your family is to establish an estate plan. Estate plans can also provide tax benefits, protect your assets and protect your privacy. If you recently lost a loved one, attorney Higey can help you with the estate administration process.
