Taking care of your family has always been the first priority in your life and that is not going to change. Planning for the future however, is something many of us do not do and consequently families can be torn apart at the most distressing times. That is why we have our Lifetime Legal department where we can look after you and your family. We can advise and assist with:
By planning ahead you can make sure you have provided for your immediate family, made sure your property goes to the right beneficiary, minimised expenses and taxes, planned for any possible incapacity and also established who would look after your affairs in the event you no longer can. By planning ahead you can provide for those who might need help, such as a child with a disability or perhaps funds for grandchildren.
In the unfortunate event of a relative becoming incapacitated, we can also help you take control and act in their best interests.
Estate and Succession planning are also vital for anyone who owns a business. If you own your own business, you will want to establish some form of plan to keep it going after you pass. An estate plan will name your successor and outline what happens to your interest in the business.
Estate planning can be made easy and without spending a lot of time or money on the process. This is not something you have to wait for as it can be carried out at any age. The moment you have property, some form of estate plan should be established. Wills and trusts can always be changed, so it is better to put something into place now. As your assets and various details change within your family, you can always go back and modify the legal documents to account for your new circumstances.
Whatever your plans, talking with our Lifetime Legal team will ensure you make the best possible plans and decisions.
