Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an Estate during your life. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a Probate and maximize the value of the estate by dealing with contingencies that you may be able to control prior to death.
Guardians are often designated for minor children and beneficiaries who may have been legally designated as incapacitated. Estate planning involves the preparation of the Last Will and Testament, trusts, beneficiary designations, statutory Power of Attorney designations, property ownership, gift, and powers of appointments, specifically the durable financial power of attorney and the durable medical power of attorney.
