The Importance Of Estate Planning

Many people hold the false idea that estate planning is for older people. But the fact is younger people are the ones who need to plan most of all. 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:

  • Wills and changes to an existing will
  • 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 ensure not only that the government stays out of your personal assets but can 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.
