    WHAT IS ESTATE PLANNING?


    Simply put, a way to protect what matters

    The term ‘estate planning’ can be confusing, but doesn’t need to be.

    An ‘estate’ is simply the totality of what you own; this includes your house, but also your bank and retirement accounts, life insurance policies, and more. ‘Estate planning’ then, is the area of law that helps you create a plan for what to do with your estate were you to become unable to make decisions for yourself, your loved ones, (otherwise known as ‘incapacitated’), or upon your death.

    While a ‘Will’ is the most common tool we’re likely familiar with, there are many others available, ranging from very complex to very simple. Depending on the size and complexity of your estate, you will want to consider different options. It is essential that you have an attorney guide you through the options available to you.

    Since each person has a very different life situation, each person will likely have very different wishes and concerns.

    WHY DO I NEED AN ESTATE PLAN?


    Simply put, it’s a confidential way to protect what matters to you

    Having an estate plan can be the difference between saving thousands of dollars in unnecessary legal fees or  undergoing a very expensive and public legal process with no guarantee of results.

    This is because without an estate plan, your estate will likely be subject to probate.

    Probate is the court process where the estate of a deceased person is administered. It typically takes a year or more and is a matter of public record. Even more so, the fee for a probate attorney is a percentage of what the estate is worth. A probate attorney is entitled to the first 4% of an estate valued at $100,000, 3% on the next $100,000 and so on.

    A simple estate plan can save you and your loved ones all of this. It’s simply not worth the risk.

    HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?

    Once you hire us, South Coast Estate Plans handles everything for you


    California Wills and Trusts Attorney

    Assess your values


    It’s important to know what’s important to you: your values, your goals, and your dreams. For example: how do you want your wealth divided if you die (among your children, or, if no children, among your nephews and nieces?) Do you want anything going to a charity you care about? And so on.

    Consider your life-stage


    Our needs change as life changes. This is why we believe it is easiest to begin where you’re currently at in life. We suggest the following broad life-stages: single adult, married couple, blended family, or senior.

    Design your plan


    Once you have a good sense of your needs and values, we would like to meet to begin designing your plan. We will ask you to fill out a questionnaire to help us get a sense of your current financial situation. With this we can begin; there is typically also a need for us to follow-up and ask clarifying questions.

    We believe that underlying the creation of an estate plan are profound human concerns: a desire to protect those we love and safeguard our legacy when we’re gone. A good estate plan should reflect these concerns and your unique wishes.

Randall, a trusted California Law Firm. We are a full service, client-focused law firm located in Southern California that specializes in designing sophisticated California Wills, Revocable Living Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Advanced Health Care Directives, and More.
