Protecting Your Legacy With Estate Planning
Estate planning is not reserved for just for those who are very wealthy. Any adult aged 18 or older who is mentally sound can create an estate plan. Planning now to protect your legacy can save your family — or the courts — from having to make decisions on your behalf if you become suddenly disabled and cannot take care of yourself. If you are a parent of minor children, your estate plan can express who you wish to become guardian of your children in the event you are no longer able to care for them.
If you do not create an estate plan, your assets — your real and personal property — could end up being distributed to your heirs under New Jersey or New York intestate laws when you pass away. This means you would not choose who receives your bounty; a little-known relative could inherit your property. With no will, the state’s probate laws govern how the court will distribute your assets. At Rogan & Associates LLC, our attorneys help clients preserve their legacy and protect their assets with our comprehensive estate planning services.
