Why Estate Planning Is Important
Perhaps you want to make certain that the assets you earned are passed on to your loved ones correctly. Perhaps you received a personal injury settlement that needs to be protected. Perhaps you have gone through a divorce and you want to make certain that your ex-spouse cannot gain control of your affairs, which is possible under Mississippi law. Perhaps you have been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition and you want to make certain that all decisions are made ahead of time to prevent familial conflict.
There are many reasons why estate planning is important. It is never too early to get an estate plan in place to protect you, your assets and your loved ones. We can help.
Estate Planning Options
People often come to us to request a will. In some cases, a will may provide all the asset protection necessary. However, a will is limited. A will only address issues that arise after a person dies. It does not provide guidance on how to deal with medical treatment and financial issues in the event of an incapacitating injury or illness. Often, we will recommend a more comprehensive estate plan for a similar cost.
Some of the estate planning options we may recommend are:
- Powers of attorney
- Life insurance
- Adult adoption
