Professional Estate Planning in Scottsdale

With age and maturity comes a natural desire to have a well-established estate plan in place. As spouses, parents, and grandparents, we feel the need to do whatever is in our power to care for and benefit our children, grandkids, dear friends, and even blended families, as well as support our favorite charities, even the event of our passing. In this part of the Sonoran Desert, almost every day is a good one. For the residents of many of these close-knit neighborhoods of South, Central, and North Scottsdale, legacy and continuity are important goals. A qualified estate planning lawyer near you can help ensure you reach these goals.

Fulfill Promises to Yourself and Your Family Through Strategic Estate Planning

Time with your kids and grandchildren may have you thinking about their futures. How many of their dreams and aspirations will come true? You may not be there to see them graduate from college, marry their sweethearts, and raise families of their own. But through comprehensive estate planning, you can fulfill bigger promises.

Expecting your first child? As parents-to-be, setting a plan in place about care and guardianship of this new life should something happen to you is necessary. No one is immune from financial ups and downs, illnesses, and the inevitable loss of loved ones. 

 

Plan for the Best Scenario, Prepare for the Worst   

It is important to talk to a local estate planning attorney with experience. One who can assist clients with complex portfolios or complicated blood relationships. Who can discuss concerns about circumstances or events that could arise at any time. You might be wondering, what is involved in estate planning? Well, one of our experienced lawyers can help you figure out the following details:

  • A living trust
  • A durable power of attorney
  • Healthcare and mental health power of attorney
  • Last Will and Testament
  • And how each of these documents will complement each other to carry out your goals

One of the experienced estate planning lawyers at Stewart Law Group can expertly guide you through the entire planning process. Be confident knowing you have done all you can to protect your family and provide for them after you or your spouse have passed.

Estate Planning Can Assist in the Event of Illness, Injury, or Disability

Family Business Succession: Have A Plan

Why not create a business succession outline within your estate plan? Will your son or daughter assume control of the family business when you and your spouse retire or step away from day-to-day operations? Discuss the importance of keeping a meaningful, irreplaceable way of life for the next generation. Why not have a plan to care for your loved ones after you’re gone?

Make Informed Decisions to Create a Plan for the Future

Does your existing estate plan need updating? Life is constantly changing. If an important event has occurred – a firstborn child, parent’s death, divorce, illness – then it’s even more pressing that those legal documents be reviewed by a competent lawyer. Make time to bring everything up to date. Laws and tax codes, personal circumstances and financial needs, as well as your intentions and wishes, are all likely to change as years go by. There will always be ups and downs, but a good estate plan will help you stay in control no matter what comes.

If you do not have an estate plan yet, then make one. Have a qualified lawyer near you explain key inheritance concepts as well as:

  • The impact of divorce
  • Providing for children from a previous marriage
  • Business succession planning
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • The benefits of tax avoidance planning
  • And more

Get accurate information from a knowledgeable legal professional so you can make informed decisions about the disposition of property during your lifetime and upon death. Providing for your loved ones financially and emotionally is a tremendous gift.

Minimize the Probate Court’s involvement and reduce the possibility of a Trust or Will contest. Make the path smoother for the personal representative, trustee, beneficiaries, and devisees. Litigation is costly and drains precious resources from the estate. A tailored plan designed to carry out your wishes under all possible scenarios is the only way to maintain control over final distribution.
