What Exactly Is Estate Planning?

Estate planning refers to using the many legal tools available for implementing your wishes and decisions in a legally effective manner. Depending on the unique circumstances of your situation, an estate plan may include:

  • A will: This is the most basic tool for preserving your wishes regarding your property and minor children.
  • A trust: This tool can be tailored to effectuate specific goals for your property and finances, including real property. Some types of trusts provide significant tax advantages.
  • A power of attorney: This is a critical tool for selecting who can make decisions for you in the event of incapacity.
  • A health care surrogate (living will): Similar to a power of attorney, this important document will designate who can make health care decisions for you in the event of incapacity. It can also set forth your end-of-life wishes.
