  • Wills - A will relays your wishes and distribution of your assets and property after you pass away. It also states the support and care you desire for your children.
  • Trusts - A trust provides management options for your assets during your lifetime and a transition for them when you die. Trusts are particularly useful when probate and excessive inheritance taxes are a concern.
  • Probate - This process identifies assets and debts of an individual's estate and determines which assets should be liquidated in order to pay the debt. The remaining assets are divided among the heirs identified by the court.
  • Power of Attorney - Legal authority to act on someone else's behalf in private affairs, business transactions, or the management of an estate or assets.
