Honestly, your estate plan isn’t about you — it’s about your family. Whether you have an existing estate plan or you need one, there are 7 crucial things your estate plan must cover to ensure your children are fully protected. You won’t want to overlook even one of them.
1. Appoint a Guardian:
One of the most critical decisions you’ll make in your estate plan is choosing a guardian for your children. At Wills & Wellness, our experienced team will guide you through this process, ensuring your wishes are clearly expressed and legally documented.
2. Create a Trust for Minors:
We highly recommend setting up trusts for your children instead of directly leaving them an inheritance. Our skilled estate planners will help you create a tailored trust that protects your assets and ensures they are used for your children’s benefit wisely and responsibly.
3. Choose a Trustee Wisely:
Selecting the right trustee is vital for the smooth administration of your estate plan. With Wills & Wellness, you can rest assured that we’ll assist you in finding a trustworthy and competent trustee who will carry out your wishes diligently.
4. Plan for Incapacity:
Life is unpredictable, and preparing for the unexpected is essential. Our estate planning experts will help you establish a durable power of attorney and healthcare proxy, ensuring your children’s care and finances are handled efficiently if you become incapacitated.
5. Educational Expenses:
We understand the value of education in shaping your children’s future. Our team will help you create provisions in your estate plan to cover educational expenses, ensuring your children have access to the best educational opportunities.
6. Protecting Assets from Creditors:
