Delaware Estate Planning Lawyers

Estate Planning

Estate planning involves a plan for the disposition of your assets following your death. While you may have one goal in mind concerning your estate, there may be many ways to accomplish that goal. Let us put our estate planning experience to work for you and help you determine the best course of action. Our office can help you with all of your estate planning needs, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advanced healthcare directives, and probate.

An essential component of your estate plan is your will, which sets out your desires for the distribution of your assets following your death. We can help you devise a will that complies with your wishes. Estate planning laws are complex, and there is room for many loopholes to be left when writing a will. Contact our experienced estate planning attorneys today to ensure that your property is distributed how you intended and that there are no loopholes left open in your will.

Other important aspects of estate planning are powers of attorney and advanced healthcare directives. With a power of attorney, you are designating someone to act for you in the event that you are no longer able to act for yourself. You can also designate someone to act for you in making healthcare decisions should you not be able to make those decisions yourself. With an advanced healthcare directive, you are indicating how you want to be cared for in the event that you become incapacitated and cannot indicate your wishes. While no one likes to think about death or the possibility of becoming incapacitated, it is important to form an estate plan now so that your wishes are followed.

We can discuss your estate planning goals with you and devise a plan that meets those goals while also considering the tax consequences. Estate planning laws are complex and you need an expert to help you ensure that your goals are met.
