Questions about Estate Planning

Planning for the future can help ease the burden of your passing for your family members. We have included some of the most common questions about estate planning in this list. If you have any other concerns, please contact the funeral home.

  • Why do I need an estate plan?
  • If I don't create an estate plan, won't the government provide one for me?
  • What's the difference between having a will and having a Living Trust?
  • The possibility of a disabling injury scares me. What would happen if I were mentally disabled and had no estate plan or just a will?
  • If I set up a Living Trust, can I be my own Trustee?
  • Will a Living Trust avoid income taxes?
  • Can I transfer real estate into a Living Trust?
  • Is the Living Trust some kind of loophole the government will eventually close down?
  • Isn't a Living Trust only for the rich?
  • Can any attorney create a Living Trust?

Most of us spend a considerable amount of time and energy in our lives accumulating wealth. As we do this, there also comes a time to preserve wealth both for our enjoyment and for future generations. A solid, effective estate plan ensures that your hard-earned wealth will pass intact to those you intend to be your beneficiaries, instead of being siphoned off to government processes and bureaucrats.
