Chardon Estate Planning Attorneys

Assisting Individuals in Chardon with all of their Estate Planning Needs

Estate plans are made up of legal documents that describe how an individual’s assets are to be used and maintained over the course of a person’s lifetime. These documents also describe how various assets are to be distributed when a person passes on – and to whom those assets should be distributed. Some of the most common estate planning documents include wills, healthcare powers of attorney, durable powers of attorney, revocable living trusts, and living wills. 

Estate plans are not a one-size-fits-all deal, and everyone’s needs and circumstances are different.

The Purpose of Proper Estate Planning

Estate planning is important, not just to ensure the support of your loved ones following your death, but also to make sure that your healthcare and financial needs are taken care of as you grow older. A well-crafted estate plan can also ensure the following, depending upon your circumstances:

  • Young families – An estate plan for a young family can help to ensure that the couple’s young children will be cared for and provided for – both financially and physically – in the event that something happens to the children’s parents and the parents are unable to care for them.
  • Families with special needs – Some families have young children or adults who are autistic or who have other special needs. Proper estate planning can ensure that these individuals’ special needs are met without having to give up benefits provided by the government, along with other types of assistance for the family member with special needs. 
  • Elderly couples – Estate planning for elderly couples can be used to help ensure that their assets are preserved, in the event that one or both individuals suffer from a costly illness or other health condition (or if one or both parties have to go to a nursing home or assisted living facility unexpectedly). Estate planning is also helpful for determining who will receive certain assets when one or both individuals pass away. 
  • Parents of young adults – Estate planning documents can also ensure that life insurance proceeds do not go to a child until the young adult attains certain milestones in his or her life, such as marriage, graduation, or buying a first residence.
