What does estate planning involve?

Estate planning allows people to provide direction about the disposition of their assets after their death. Estate planning can include wills and trusts, as well as powers of attorney and health care directives.

Both state and federal laws impact estate planning, and some may find that more elaborate or creative legal means are necessary for their situation. Some of these more complex techniques include trusts, family limited partnerships (FLPs) and limited liability companies (LLCs). The attorneys at Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC also prepare special needs trusts for disabled beneficiaries, honorary trusts for the care of your pet, premarital agreements, and other important planning documents.

Estate tax and other estate-related issues such as the Federal Estate Tax exemption are hot legislative items, with new laws under consideration on a regular basis. So, it’s important to hire a competent and experienced estate planning lawyer who will understand your unique estate planning goals and keep your estate plan up-to-date with the latest laws.
