How to Make Sure Your Cape Coral Estate Planning is Individualized
Properly executed estate plans protect your finances in the event of accidents, sickness or unexpected death. Making sure your individualized Cape Coral estate planning endeavor is legally sound and functional can help you and your family avoid unnecessary stress and hardship in the future.
What Kind of Individualized Estate Planning Services are Available?
The Mattar Firm provides all types of estate planning products essential for reducing estate taxes, protecting beneficiaries, protecting assets from unknown creditors and avoiding complicated probate litigation. In addition to preparing wills/testaments and powers of attorney, we also help individuals create:
- Living wills
- Long-term health care plans
- Charitable trusts
- Irrevocable/revocable trusts
- Minor’s trust
- Special needs trust
- Prenuptial agreements
- Asset distribution
Estate planning in Cape Coral can also include identifying someone you trust who can make decisions for you in case you become mentally incapacitated and specifying in your will a family member or friend who you want to take care of minor children if you are unable to do so.
Powers of Attorney and Individualized Estate Planning
With people living well into their 80s and 90s today, powers of attorney are one reason Cape Coral residents seek our assistance. Durable powers of attorney can legally authorize someone to take care of managing investments, paying bills and other financial aspects of your life if you become severely disabled. A medical power of attorney designates someone to make important decisions about your medical care if you are incapacitated. You may choose to have two powers of attorney–one for finances and one for your health care–if you wish.
With the help of an experienced estate planning attorney, individualized estate planning is accomplished without spending excessive time and money. Additionally, you do not need to wait until you are over 50 to establish your estate plan. It can be done at any age and the sooner you begin the process, the easier can be to make changes.
Start enjoying the peace of mind that comes from knowing you and your family’s future is arranged to cover financial and medical needs. Call the Mattar Firm today to schedule a consultation appointment.
