Cobalt Law helps individuals and couples with estate planning. Estate plans typically include a will, powers of attorney, and health care directives. If you have minor children, you can name a guardian in your estate plan. You might also want to establish a trust if that is a good fit for your assets and situation.
Alternatively, you can choose not to act. In that instance, another person will make these decisions for you. These decisions might not align with your desired outcomes when you were alive. Or, choosing not to act might burden your family with decision-making at a time when they are already dealing with your passing and grieving.
My approach is to make your estate planning process comprehensive and convenient. Meetings occur virtually or at your home. Typically, you will pay a flat fee for the service you need.
Instead of leaving your loved ones with the burden of attending to your estate after your death, you can begin planning your legacy today.
A will is a legal document that communicates your final wishes regarding your assets, how that property is to be distributed after your death, and the person who will manage the property until the final distribution.
Trusts can be set up in wills, these are known as testamentary trusts. Trusts can also be set up on their own by a grantor, who then funds the trust with property. Trusts typically avoid the need to open probate.
