An estate plan is a legally enforceable plan that controls how property should be held, administered, and/or distributed. It also provides instructions for any financial or medical decisions that you deem necessary. Proper estate planning not only puts you in charge of your finances, it can also minimize expenses and eliminate frustrations associated with managing your affairs if you become disabled, or in the event of your passing.
Ensure the Life & Legacy You've Built Is Protected
A properly prepared estate plan can shield you from the unexpected, if you become incapacitated. If you do not have an estate plan, someone can petition the court to gain control over your medical care and assets. Without an estate plan, there is no guarantee or certainty that your spouse or loved ones shall be the ones obtaining that control.
When individuals pass away without a will, the State of Indiana shall control how their assets are distributed. The State isn’t interested in reducing settlement costs, streamlining the distribution of assets, or making sure that your wishes are carried out. Politakis Law can prevent this from happening when you contact us for estate planning services in Schererville.
Plan For Financial Security & Retain The Assets That Took Years To Build
Your estate plan can assure the continuance of your surviving loved ones’ lifestyle while protecting your assets and substantially reducing excise, gift, estate, and generation-skipping taxes. Your estate plan can also protect your heirs’ inheritances from divorce, creditors, and even themselves by implementing safeguards until your heirs are mature enough to handle a large inheritance on their own. It can also provide financial assistance to a disabled loved one after you pass away. These all can be achieved discreetly and privately. However, without an estate plan, there is no guarantee that your assets shall go to the individuals you planned on, while your financial and familial information become public record since your assets are distributed in Probate Court as the State sees fit.
