Some of the ways in which estate planning and asset protection helps include:

-Implement a will with an asset protection trust that protects your surviving spouse and other beneficiaries.

-Help parents or grandparents identify the guardian of minor or disabled children or grandchildren. This ensures designation of a trusted attorney-in-fact to make financial and medical decisions if you are unable.

-Confirm that your personal choices for health care matters are followed in the event you face incapacitation.

-Avoid unnecessary guardianships.

-Designates a personal representative to oversee the settlement and distribution of your estate when you pass away.

-Simplifies your estate plan without weakening asset protection via tools such as automatic “upon death” transfers.

-Consideration of a Revocable Living Trust where long term care spousal protects are not necessary.
