The Importance Of Estate Planning
Every adult, no matter what phase of life they are in, needs an estate plan. As individuals get married, acquire property, buy real estate and have children, it becomes important to protect personal assets and ensure minors will be cared for if anything happens to their parents or guardians. Later in life, ensuring an elderly person’s needs are met and that their assets will be transferred easily to the next generation are more likely to be top priorities. Each family’s estate needs are different. Because of this, estate planning may involve many different strategies, from the preparation of documents such as wills and trusts, to the re-titling of property or lifetime gifting.
Campbell & Pruchnik, LLC has been providing estate planning services to the residents of Monmouth and Ocean counties for nearly half a century. When you retain us to help you with your estate planning, we start by sitting down with you, learning more about your goals and helping you understand the process. We take the time to explain the different estate planning strategies and the benefits and consequences of those strategies. We will not sell you services or products you do not need, and if you are able to complete a step without our help, we will discuss how you may do that successfully.
What Documents Are Involved In Estate Planning?
Once you have decided how you want to proceed, we will prepare all the necessary documents to establish and implement your estate plan, including:
- Simple Wills
- Trusts and Special Needs Trusts
- Powers of Attorney
- Living Wills or Health Care Directives
Our estate planning attorneys understand New Jersey and federal laws governing estate documents. They seek to make the process comfortable and aim to help you feel confident the steps you are taking are the right ones for your family.
