Protect Your Family by Planning for the Future

Estate Planning Attorney Pocatello

Estate Planning involves a variety of planning tools and decisions that depend on your personal situation and desires. An Idaho Estate Planning Attorney can assist you by creating a plan that addresses not only your current situation but your hopes for the future.

An Estate Plan may be simple consisting of a will, durable powers of attorney, living will, and other advanced directives; or, it may be complex and catered around trusts and asset protection. Your individual and family needs are the most important thing to consider when forming your estate plan. 

Effective Estate Plans typically can help you and your family by:

  • Providing guidance on difficult life decisions through living wills and advanced directives
  • Appoint someone to manage your health and financial decisions if you ever become incapacitated
  • Minimize and hopefully eliminate any fighting among your heirs by providing detailed and specific instructions on asset distribution
  • Pass on your family Legacy including your Intellectual, Spiritual and Human assets.

Some things to consider before speaking with an Idaho Estate Planning lawyer are:

  • What is the current value of your assets? This includes the value of life insurance, retirement accounts, and real property.
  • Who do you want to receive your assets?
  • How do you want your assets distributed? Cash? Spread out over time?
  • Do you want to provide any gifts to any individual or organization
  • Who do you want to be your decision maker if you become incapacitated?
  • Do you have any heirs or children that have Special Needs?
