Avoid the Expense of Probate Court
If you have not created a will, the future of your estate will be decided by a local court judge, usually in probate court. This process can be expensive as well as time-consuming, and there is no guarantee that your estate will be distributed according to your wishes. Probate court is a public proceeding, so the details of your estate will become public record. The estate planning attorneys at Davidson Law Group can help you plan ahead so you can sidestep the courts and execute your will as you intended.
Take Advantage of the Tax Benefits of Planning Ahead
If you don’t plan ahead, you’re missing out on a lot of tax benefits that could make a significant difference to the value of your estate. Trusts can be established to protect the inheritance you leave for your loved ones from unnecessary taxation. Estate attorneys with Davidson Law Group can assist you to restructure your assets, so you can minimize taxation and maximize the value of your estate.
