Preparing For Your Future – Estate Planning for Indiana Residents

Developing a comprehensive estate plan today no longer covers only the distribution and transfer of property and assets. Other factors involved include how medical and financial decisions will be made if you become incapacitated, guardianship for minor children, business succession planning, as well as reducing the taxes for the beneficiaries of the estate. Our Indianapolis & Carmel Based Indiana Estate planning attorneys can guide you through every step of the process.

What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the legal process of assessing an individual’s total assets and property holdings, and creating a plan for the transfer of those assets at the individual’s death according to the wishes of the property owner. The primary goal is often to avoid or minimize the estate and inheritance taxes owed when the property passes to the beneficiaries. Planning for the client’s possible future incapacity, as well as the needs of younger family members are also considerations in the estate planning process.

Regardless of the value of your estate, to assure that these and other areas are carried out as you wish means having a will, determining if a trust is appropriate for you, assigning a power of attorney, creating a living will and a medical power of attorney, and addressing the tax liability on your estate by the way you distribute your assets to spouse, children, charitable donations, or other beneficiaries.

Another consideration is the cost and public record of probate court, under which wills are administered, or establishing a trust to lower estate taxes or to cover specific situations, such as a special needs trust.
