The Advantages Of Working With An Estate Planning Attorney

At Anastasi & Nielsen, we have helped many individuals contemplate their final wishes. We understand what needs to be done to create a comprehensive plan that protects families. We want to explain some advantages of working with an experienced estate planning law firm when creating your estate plan.

It can help you avoid probate.

The probate process in California can place a significant strain on families. Probate takes a long time to complete and can drain many of the assets that you have accumulated, leaving less for the beneficiaries. An experienced lawyer can help you take steps to prevent your property from being subject to the probate process. This allows the distribution of assets to beneficiaries much more promptly, which can provide peace of mind to your loved ones after you pass away.

It will allow you to be sure that you have a customized plan in place.

This is probably one of the most important services you receive when working with an attorney. Forms on the internet are good for one thing, and one thing only, and that is they get you to start thinking about estate planning. These forms know nothing about your assets or what you want to do with your property. You will want certain property to pass to certain individuals, or you may wish to exclude others from the estate entirely. If you simply fill out a form, there is no way that your plan will take these wishes into account. You have to meet with an attorney to make sure you have a valid plan in place.

The right firm can save you time and money.
