Estate Planning Attorneys Advising On Trusts, Wills And More
An important part of long-term financial planning is documenting your wishes for the distribution of your estate after your death. A complete estate plan may also include powers of attorney for times of incapacity during your lifetime. Together with your other private and business affairs, your testamentary documents help ensure your control over your material legacy even after your life is over.
If you have significant assets and family members whom you hope to provide for, charitable causes for which you hope to make a difference or other aspirations beyond your lifetime, a well-thought-out estate plan can give you and your closest family members peace of mind.
No matter whether you have average assets or a high net worth portfolio, estate planning can help you and your family save taxes, protect property and avoid unnecessary legal fees at a stressful time. At Law Offices of Peter G. Aziz & Associates LLC, in Clifton, New Jersey, we are available to help you clarify and structure your estate plan.
Elements Of A Basic Or Complex Estate Plan
Our attorneys can help you devise documents such as the following according to your values and priorities:
- A simple or complex will, or a pour-over will to account for assets that are not in your trust(s)
- A revocable or irrevocable living trust; a special needs trust; a generation skipping trust for grandchildren, or any other type of trust that will accomplish your goals
- A financial power of attorney and a health care power of attorney, also known as an advanced medical directive
The list above is typical of many people’s estate plans but your estate plan may encompass other legal instruments designed to protect assets when you or your spouse nears the end of life and then reaches that juncture.
Our lawyers advise both middle-class and high net worth individuals and couples. Our counsel includes a close look at retirement and tax planning, special needs planning to account for anyone in the family with disabilities, and asset protection spanning generations.
Should your family create a family limited partnership or other customized asset protection plans? Let’s talk about that. And if you or your spouse owns a business, we can help you structure business succession plans that will coordinate well with your personal estate plan.
