We recognize that preparing for death can be an intimidating and stressful process. Much of that anxiety can be alleviated when you take the correct preparatory steps, ensuring peace-of-mind at the time of your passing. Our professional legal team can help you develop a legal plan to account for all of your assets. According to Realtor.com, homes in Springfield are currently selling for a median price of over $400,000, so your home may be your highest-value asset. Substantial assets such as this need to be addressed in your estate plan.
There can be unexpected consequences when an estate plan does not exist upon a person’s death. Without an estate plan, property must pass through intestate succession, a process that is determined by state laws. With Intestacy laws the state acts as your estate administrator, following default rules to dispose of a person’s estate after their death. Often times, this leads to a person’s assets being distributed in an unwanted manner.
Below, we have provided downloadable resources to help you get started with professional estate planning. At Baratta, Russell & Baratta, we recommend the completion of these three primary documents: a Last Will and Testament, a Durable Financial Power of Attorney and an Advance Directive for Healthcare.
