Estate Planning That Achieves Your Goals

Everyone should have an estate plan to address issues and avoid problems that could arise before and after their death. It helps you protect your assets and provide guidance to your family. Without a plan and valid documents, you could face unintended consequences.

  • Incapacitation: Powers of attorney, trusts and other documents can protect you in the event that you are unable to make decisions. Without a plan, a court could decide who will take care of your minor children or hospitals and insurance companies could make major medical decisions for you instead of your family. You could also suffer serious financial harm if someone you do not trust gains access to your money.
  • After your death: A will, trusts and executor designations can protect your assets and avoid having Kansas intestacy laws control how your assets are distributed. It also protects your family from having to guess what you would have wanted or fight over which assets they felt they should have received. It can also protect your estate from being unnecessarily taxed.
