Serving Our Neighbors in Reno with Estate Planning Services
Estate planning provides a way to prepare yourself and your family for what happens to your property after your death. Estate planning also gives you an opportunity to plan just in case of incapacity at any point during your lifetime. If you ever become incapacitated, either temporarily or permanently, your estate plan will provide appropriate instructions and allow your family to step in when you need them most, often with no court intervention. If you plan ahead, you have the chance to identify who you want to inherit your property after your death. If you have a large estate, you also have a chance to take steps to reduce the estate taxes your estate may be required to pay.
Reno Residents Need Estate Planning
No, estate planning is not only for the rich. Estate planning protects everyone who has anything they want to leave behind for their families. Even the smallest estate needs to be prepared in order to protect both the assets and the beneficiaries to which those assets will be passed. In reality, most middle-class families need a plan just in case a family’s breadwinners are no longer capable of supporting the family.
