Clients may have different reasons for developing an estate plan. For some, tax considerations are paramount. For others, ensuring the guardianship of their children or dependents is more important. It is our goal to work with you to develop a plan that best fits your needs. Some estate plans may be similar but no single estate plan can be said to fit everyone. Below are some definitions so that you may understand the terminology of estate planning:
Intestate: When one dies without a will, they are considered to be intestate. The laws of intestacy dictate how your property will be distributed when you die, if you do not have a will. Thus, if you die without a will, you will not have a say in how your property is distributed.
Power of Attorney: A power of attorney is a legal document signed by a person giving another person the power to act in conducting the signer's business, including signing papers, checks, title documents, contracts, handling bank accounts and other activities in the name of the person granting the power. There are different types of powers of attorney, including limited and general.
Trust: A trust is a legal document that creates an entity to hold assets for the benefit of a person, persons or entities, called beneficiaries. A trustee manages the trust and sometimes holds title on behalf of the trust. A trust is created by a person or persons called trustors, settlors or donors, who execute a written declaration of trust which establishes the trust and spells out the terms and conditions upon which it will be conducted. There are different types of trusts for different purposes.
Will: A will is a legal document that provides for the distribution of a person's assets after they die.
