All the Legal Documents for your Estate Planning Needs

While estate planning may sound like it is only for those with significant wealth, a well thought out estate plan can benefit everyone. It is important to make sure that your family knows your wishes for not only distribution of your assets, but also for your care in the event you suffer a terminal illness or are incapacitated due to an injury. It is never a good idea to leave these issues to chance and hope that your family knows your wishes.

As we age, the possibility of suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other debilitating illnesses increases. Too often, our family members are left to make decisions on their own without knowing what we want. By establishing a living will, preparing final wishes documents and preparing powers of attorney for our health care, our finances and even our mental health care, we are able to maintain control regardless of our current medical or mental condition.

Typically, most people depend on expensive attorneys or financial planners to help them prepare trust documents, prepare last wills and testaments or fund their trusts. However, at Kramer Legacy Documents, LLC, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to help you with all your estate planning needs at more affordable rates.

“Those who spend time clearly expressing their intentions to their trusted advisors, and then execute the appropriate estate planning documents, are more likely to have survivors who will peacefully mourn the death of a loved one and amicably share in the decedent’s legacy. Conversely, those who don’t express their intentions to the trusted advisors, ad don’t have estate plans tailored to the needs of their family, will likely have survivors who don’t grieve normally and can’t embrace the decedent’s legacy because they are consumed by litigating over it.”
