Effective Transfer Of Wealth Requires Careful Estate Planning
Many people avoid planning for their own death because they do not want to face the inevitable. Nonetheless, it is necessary and important to consult with an experienced estate planning lawyer to arrange for a smooth transfer of assets to your husband or wife, your children, your grandchildren, your favorite charity or other members of your family, or your loved one when you pass away.
Ensure That Your Assets Are Distributed As You Wish
Only through careful planning can you ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. For most people, this means preparing a plan to transfer personal property and real property to family members or charities without delay or unnecessary expense for the recipients.
