What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning involves preparing for the management and distribution of your assets after your death or incapacitation. It encompasses various legal instruments and strategies designed to ensure your wishes are honored, minimize taxes, and avoid probate. Proper estate planning also addresses healthcare decisions and guardianship arrangements for minor children.

Services Offered by Goodman Estate Law

  1. Wills and Trusts
    • Trusts: Trusts are versatile tools that can help manage and protect your assets. They offer benefits such as avoiding probate, reducing estate taxes, and providing for minor children or individuals with special needs.
    • Wills: A well-drafted estate plan needs both a trust and a will. In a comprehensive estate plan a will serves as a safety net to help ensure smooth administration of the estate. For families with minor children, your will also allows you to appoint guardians for minor children.
  2. Power of Attorney
    • Financial Power of Attorney: This document designates a trusted individual to manage your financial affairs if you become incapacitated. It ensures that your bills are paid, investments managed, and financial decisions made in your best interest.
    • Advance Healthcare Directive: This document allows you to appoint someone to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so. It ensures your healthcare preferences are respected during critical times. In this directive you outline your preferences for medical treatment and end-of-life care. It guides your healthcare providers and loved ones in making decisions that align with your wishes.
  3. Estate Tax Planning
    • Our attorneys are skilled in strategies to minimize estate taxes, ensuring that more of your assets are preserved for your beneficiaries. This includes the use of different types of trusts, gifting strategies, and other tax-efficient tools.
