Why You Need An Estate Plan

You read about them all the time. A famous celebrity dies without a will. Chaos and litigation ensue for years as lawyers and the courts try to sort the estate out. You think you don't need to worry because you're young and your estate is not as large as that of a celebrity. But you're wrong. While the dollars at stake may be less, the lack of a will can still cause chaos for your heirs. Our attorney at J. Kuo Law P.C. can help you create a cost-effective estate plan that will help you and protect your heirs.

You Need All The Basic Estate Planning Documents

No matter the size of your estate, you need an estate plan. Because an estate plan is more than simply a will. A will is necessary, as it allows you to control the distribution of your property, but keep in mind, a will alone is not an estate plan.

An Illinois estate plan does more than control the distribution of your property. It may include all of the following documents:

  • Revocable living trust
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance health care directive or "living will"

Reduce The Stress On Your Family

Putting together a comprehensive estate plan is valuable to you and your family. It can help you focus on many planning aspects for the future, and it provides immediate protection with the powers of attorney and advance health care directives. Our attorney can sit down with you and explain how each part of the plan works and help you create a plan that achieves your goals.
