Concord Estate Planning Attorneys
Legal Protection for Your Family’s Future in Cabarrus County
Everyone leaves a legacy. With an estate plan, you can decide how you will provide for your family or give back to your community. You can also prevent your family from hardship after your passing and make sure your wishes are remembered. Without an estate plan, however, you will have no way of expressing your wishes, leaving a probate court judge to distribute your family’s belongings and assets. Making an estate plan doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process. To get started, simply sit down with us at Brannen & Walker. We can help you begin planning and protecting your legacy.
The Benefits of Planning Ahead
It can be easy to put off planning for your family’s future. “I’ll take care of it next week” becomes “I’ll take care of it next month, and so on, leaving your loved ones with no action plan should illness or serious injury befall you. The better choice is to call now and get started on outlining the basics of your wishes. In some cases, such as when applying for SSDI, getting a head start can make a huge difference.
Estate plans can provide guidance for your finances and health care if you become incapacitated. They can give clear direction to your family on your property and assets after your death. A good estate plan will allow your wishes to be executed exactly, while removing the burden of planning and decision-making from your family.
A solid estate plan protects your family from these and more:
- Trouble accessing your financial information, property ownership records, or important passwords and accounts
- Wondering about the choices you would make in bequeathing personal property
- Forgetting any charitable donations you would like to make
- Family disagreement over who is entitled to benefit from your estate
- Having to make difficult decisions about your health care because they do not know your preferences
Documents designating Health Care Power of Attorney, Financial Power of Attorney, your last will and trust, and any living trusts must be completed in compliance with North Carolina laws to be valid. This is why we recommend working closely with one of our Concord estate planning attorneys as you make these decisions.
