4 Critical California Estate Planning Documents
California laws can make estate planning a complex process. The most important components of an estate plan, in most cases, include:
- Living trust (also known as a revocable trust)
- Advanced health care directive
- General durable power of attorney
An estate plan can be as simple or as complex as you need it to be. I can help you decide which tools can best prepare you for the future, based on your situation and unique needs.
An Estate Plan Can Make Your Wishes Known
Who is legally empowered to make healthcare decisions and manage your finances if you have an accident and become incapacitated? Having the right estate plan is crucial. It can make your wishes clear about taking extraordinary measures if you need them and ensures your bills get paid while you are out of commission.
Without an estate plan, your loved ones can dispute the decisions about who will raise your children and have the right to your home and other assets. They may stand at your bedside, fighting over who has the right to make end-of-life decisions for you when you can’t. If they go to court, it can take years and a lot of money to get everything straightened out.
