When most people think of estate planning, they think of high net worth individuals protecting houses, cars, and large bank accounts. However, estate planning is much more than that. Everyone can go through basic estate planning to protect themselves, their assets, and their loved ones. If you are looking for an attorney to help you create legal documents for your future, look no further.

estate planning allows you to dictate what happens to your property after you pass away. It also allows you to name an executor to your estate, a guardian for your minor children, and someone who can make decisions regarding your health and finances if you are no longer capable of doing so on your own. Even more, it allows you to protect your family from unnecessary expenses and legal proceedings that often arise after death. At The Law Office of Nicole Israel, we offer three levels of planning to meet your needs when you need it most!

How Do I Know If I Need
As mentioned earlier, there’s a common misconception that only specific people should do it. However, it’s beneficial for most people who have families or assets for numerous reasons. If you’re unsure about your needs for estate planning, answer these questions:
Do you have young children who would require a guardian if you were to pass away?
Do you want your family to avoid estate tax or probate in the event you pass unexpectedly?
Do you have assets that you would like to pass on to your children or other beneficiaries at the time of your death?
estate planning is not always about death, either. In the event you become incapacitated, you can make your wishes known and choose someone to help handle your financial and healthcare decisions.
