As you accumulate wealth and assets throughout your lifetime, it is important to ensure that these assets are protected and distributed according to your wishes after your death. At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we specialize in providing expert guidance and assistance with all aspects of estate planning, including asset protection.
Our team of experienced attorneys is dedicated to helping you create a comprehensive plan that will ensure the preservation of your wealth and the security of your loved ones. We offer a wide range of services, including:
One of the key elements of any effective estate plan is a well-drafted will or trust. These legal documents allow you to specify how you want your assets to be distributed after your death, and can help to avoid disputes and conflicts among your loved ones.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we have extensive experience in drafting and reviewing wills and trusts for our clients. Our attorneys will work closely with you to understand your goals and wishes, and will help you to create a legally-sound document that reflects your desires. We can also review existing wills and trusts to ensure that they are up-to-date and properly reflect your current situation.
No one likes to think about the possibility of becoming incapacitated due to illness or injury, but it is important to plan for this eventuality. By appointing someone to manage your financial and medical affairs through a power of attorney, you can ensure that your wishes are carried out and that your loved ones are protected.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we can provide expert advice on the use of powers of attorney, and can help you to determine the best type of power of attorney for your situation. We can also assist with the drafting and execution of the necessary legal documents.
One of the most effective ways to protect your assets from creditors and lawsuits is to set up a family limited partnership or other entity. This can be a great option for those who have a significant amount of assets and want to ensure that those assets are protected.
Setting up a family limited partnership involves creating a legal entity that is owned by multiple individuals. This entity can then be used to hold and manage your assets, such as real estate, investments, and other property. By doing this, you can effectively shield your assets from creditors and lawsuits, as the assets are no longer owned by you personally.
In addition to protecting your assets from creditors and lawsuits, setting up a family limited partnership or other entity can also provide other benefits. For example, it can help to simplify the management of your assets, as the entity can be managed by a single person or group of people. It can also help to reduce your tax burden, as the entity may be eligible for certain tax deductions and exemptions.
Overall, setting up a family limited partnership or other entity can be a smart way to protect your assets and provide other benefits. At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, our team has extensive experience in helping clients set up these types of entities, and we can help you determine if this is the right option for you.
One of the most effective ways to protect your assets is to make gifts of them to your loved ones. This can not only help to reduce your tax burden, but it can also shield your assets from creditors and lawsuits.
Our attorneys can help you to determine the best way to make gifts of your assets, taking into account factors such as the size of your estate, your tax bracket, and your future financial needs. We can also assist you with the legal documentation and processes involved in transferring ownership of your assets to your loved ones.
Life insurance can be a powerful tool for asset protection, providing financial security for your loved ones and potentially reducing your estate tax liability.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we can help you to choose the right life insurance policy for your needs, taking into account factors such as your age, your health, and the size of your estate. We can also assist you with the legal and financial aspects of setting up a life insurance policy, ensuring that it is properly integrated into your overall estate plan.
In addition to providing financial protection for your loved ones, life insurance can also be used to pay off any outstanding debts or expenses that may arise after your death. This can help to ensure that your assets are preserved for your intended beneficiaries, rather than being depleted by creditors or other claimants.
As we age, it's natural to worry about our ability to care for ourselves and maintain our independence. That's why it's so important to plan for long-term care and other end-of-life expenses. At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we can help you create a plan that ensures you receive the care you need, while also protecting your assets.
One way to plan for long-term care is through the use of Medicaid planning strategies. Medicaid is a government program that provides health care benefits to eligible individuals and families with low income and limited resources. By using Medicaid planning strategies, you can potentially protect your assets from being used to pay for your long-term care expenses.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we'll work with you to determine if Medicaid planning is right for you, and if so, we'll help you create a plan that meets your needs and goals. We'll also help you navigate the complex rules and regulations surrounding Medicaid eligibility, so you can feel confident that you're making the best decisions for yourself and your family.
Charitable giving is a powerful way to make a positive impact on the world. It allows you to support the causes you care about and make a difference in the lives of others.
But charitable giving can also have significant benefits for you and your family. By supporting charitable organizations, you can potentially reduce your estate tax liability and pass more of your wealth on to your loved ones.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we can help you develop a charitable giving plan that aligns with your goals and values. We'll work with you to identify the organizations you want to support and determine the best ways to make your gifts.
One of the key services that we offer at Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys is assistance with the administration of your estate after your death. This includes helping to manage the probate process, which is the legal process of administering a deceased person's estate. This can involve identifying and valuing the deceased person's assets, paying any debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries.
We can help you to navigate the probate process and ensure that your wishes are carried out in accordance with the law. This can help to avoid disputes and ensure that your assets are distributed in a timely and efficient manner.
In addition to helping with the probate process, we can also provide assistance with the distribution of assets. This can involve providing guidance on how to distribute assets such as real estate, personal property, and financial accounts. We can help you to determine the best way to distribute your assets in order to maximize their value and minimize any potential tax liabilities.
Finally, we can also help to resolve any disputes that may arise during the administration of your estate. This can include disputes between beneficiaries, or disputes between the estate and creditors. Our attorneys have experience in mediating and litigating such disputes, and we can help you to find a resolution that is fair and just.
