We develop your estate plan with your personal concerns, objectives and family requirements at the forefront.
As you begin to work with Wills & Trusts Now!! we introduce you to many of the strategies commonly used in estate planning. Among those strategies is the creation of a revocable living trust during your life time and the transfer of some of your assets to that trust for the benefit of your spouse or other beneficiaries. This form of trust enables the person creating the trust, as the grantor and initial trustee, to maintain control of the assets transferred to the trust.
Unfortunately, many families will use a quit claim deed to avoid probate and to further their estate planning objectives rather than to employ a revocable living trust to accomplish planning for spouses and children. However, doing so, often results in serious negative consequences for the family. In planning your estate, Wills & Trusts Now!! will ask you questions about the health of each spouse and each child, educational and employment concerns, marital concerns and the financial capabilities existing in your family.
Our Michigan licensed estate planning attorneys will allocate the time to listen and understand your goals and develop an estate plan that protects your assets and your family.
