Preemptive Representation ∙ Avoiding Probate
Probate is a costly, time-consuming process that often introduces new conflicts into already challenging family dynamics. One of the most important investments that a family can make is a legally accurate, effective estate plan. When the estate plan presents no issues or confusion, it is much more likely to avoid probate. Cushing & Dolan, P.C., can help you create a comprehensive estate plan, which can include:
- Wills: No estate plan is complete without a will, the fundamental document for testamentary wealth transfers.
- Trusts: We can help you understand the myriad of trust instruments available to help you pass on your assets while maximizing state and federal tax benefits like the current $5 million gift tax exclusion.
- End-of-life agency considerations: Conservatorships, living wills, and durable powers of attorney can help protect your assets for the possible event of injuries or illnesses late in life that prevent you from handling your own affairs or communicating your wishes effectively.
- Retirement and business interests: We can also help you integrate multi-generational IRA planning and business succession planning into your comprehensive estate planning strategy.
