Estate Planning For Elderly Adults

Estate Planning for Elderly Adults
In your golden years you may feel like everything is in order with your estate. You may have a will, long term care insurance, a life insurance policy, and even a trust in place. If you do, good for you! If you do not, you definitely should. Either way, having an experienced attorney, such as Cara Law, review your estate what you have, is a good idea. 

Having a will that is not up to date, and/or not properly filed with the legal system, or not having a will at all, means your beneficiaries could have to deal with weeks,  months, or even years of probate after you pass away to settle your estate. In probate, the courts decide who gets what, regardless of what your intentions may have been. Having an attorney review your estate plan can help avoid a messy situation and ensure your estate is protected. 

Cara Law will review your entire estate and advise you on any changes that should be made, let you know if you need additional documents in place, such as advanced directives, go through Medicaid planning with you, and make sure that everything is in order that will make things as easy as possible for those you are leaving behind. 

Proper planning with an experienced attorney, like Jackie Cara, will give you peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be carried out and that your family won’t be burdened with unnecessary stress in an already difficult time. 

While it is true that no one likes to think about a time when we are no longer around, creating an estate plan with an attorney who really cares about you and your family, will make the process easy and understandable. Cara Law is a small, boutique style law firm that gets to know its clients on a personal level. Because we are a small firm, you will get the personalized attention you deserve and know that you are in the hands of someone who genuinely cares about your future.
