Do I Need a Proper Estate Plan?
Arizona and New Mexico Estate Planning Attorneys
Don’t assume that your last will and testament is adequate to protect your family upon your death. It is a start, but it is not enough. Even the most carefully created will won’t protect your heirs and beneficiaries from estate taxes, expenses, publicity and delays of probate. Even if you have established a revocable living trust, it might not include every tax advantage necessary to protect your assets upon death. If you have minor children or children from a previous marriage, if you have a spouse or elderly parents with long-term care needs that can devastate an estate, if you have a potential income, capital gains or estate tax issue, or if you want to protect your beneficiaries from creditors or predators, you need a well-crafted, intelligent estate plan that covers the four corners of planning.
