The Importance Of Estate Planning

Many people are under the misimpression that estate planning is for older people. But the fact is that planning is just as important for younger adults. Many of us begin to accumulate wealth in our 30s. For example, we buy a nice house, we forge ahead in a good career with a retirement fund and we create savings. Many people also have children during this time. An effective and comprehensive estate plan ensures that your children, spouse and property are protected.

At Tuttle & McCloskey, PC, we have helped hundreds of families and individuals throughout the valley create estate plans. We can help with the following:

  • Wills and changes to existing wills
  • Trusts, trust administration and asset distribution
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
  • Estate tax

Avoid Probate

Probate in California is time-consuming and costly. In short, it is a huge headache. Once the court gets involved, things become more complicated. Careful planning can not only ensure that the government stays out of your personal assets but also detail who gains custody of any minor children and specific assets. Avoiding probate is crucial for families with unique assets and properties. Without planning, beloved and valuable family property can end up in probate.
