    Key Elements of Estate Planning

    Last Will & Testament

    Commonly known as a will, this document records your last wishes about how your assets need to be handled after your passing. It lets you name the people you’d like to leave your possessions to.

    Healthcare Power of Attorney

    An HPOA documents your decision of naming a single person as the decision makes for your healthcare in the event when you are not able to make those for yourself.

    Living Will

    Also called an Advanced Medical Directive, this document lays down your wishes about medical care should you at any point in life become terminally ill, or unable to communicate.

    Financial Power of Attorney

    This document names the one who you want to be responsible for your financial decisions. This person is to act on your behalf in the event you should become incapacitated.

    Establishment of Trust

    This legal entity needs to be established so that it can own your assets (while living or at the time of death). It is controlled as per your wishes as documented in a legal document which created the trust.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What is estate planning?

    Estate planning is the process that defines clearly how one’s estate (possessions) will be handled after the person has passed on. One’s estate includes everything they possess including property, movables, savings & investments, life insurance, personal possession, and, in fact, everything you possess.

    This plan controls how your estate is given to the people or entities you want them to be given to.

    2. What should an ideal estate plan cover?

    A proper estate plan should cover:

    ⦁ Distribution or property
    ⦁ Tax planning
    ⦁ Probate avoidance measures
    ⦁ Healthcare planning
    ⦁ Guardianship clauses for minors or special needs individuals
    ⦁ Powers of attorney
    ⦁ Beneficiaries
    ⦁ Charitable gifting

    It is recommended to hire only an experienced estate planning attorney in Maryland to ensure that your plan is foolproof.

    3. What are the benefits of estate planning?

    The biggest benefit of estate planning is that your family does not have to worry about how your estate needs to be handled after you are gone, especially when they’re still grieving.

    Your estate plan is a testimony of your clear decisions and instructions about how and by whom your possessions will be possessed and managed after you have deceased. Your money will or trust will decide what needs to be done with your money.

    4. When should I consider estate planning?

    While there is no clear answer to that, the truth is that if you are not a minor and possess anything in your name, you should ideally go for estate planning. A great start could be consulting an estate planning lawyer in Maryland and discussing if you need one yet.

    We can help you figure it out. We’d be happy to consult you free of cost. Book your FREE consultation here.

    5. What if I die without having an estate plan in place?

    In that case, ideally your estate will be distributed fairly among your “heirs at law” or your family as per the law of the state. You can save them this trouble of planning and executing later simply by investing now in a solid estate plan.
