Last Will & Testaments, Living Wills
Most people are familiar with the term "last will and testament." This estate planning document details your end-of-life wishes and how you wish to distribute property among beneficiaries when you pass away.
However, just as vital is a living will. You can use a living will to establish healthcare and financial power of attorney, determining who takes care of you and your estate should you become incapacitated at any stage of your life.
Our Bakersfield estate planning attorney can help you understand the estate planning process in more detail, working with you to ensure you're familiar with processes such as probate. We'll draft a comprehensive, equitable will on your behalf that ensures your estate is distributed properly among beneficiaries and your loved ones obtain the care they need and deserve when you pass away.
Trusts serve the same purpose as a last will and testament in some ways, enabling you to determine how certain estate property is distributed among beneficiaries.
However, trusts are not subject to the probate process, making them an exceptionally effective way of transferring valuable property to beneficiaries while making the estate administration and probate processes easier for your friends, family, and loved ones.
Our trust attorneys can help you develop a separate or joint trust that protects your assets and helps preserve your legacy for beneficiaries.
At Divorced by Design, our Bakersfield estate planning attorney uses an empathetic, client-first approach to estate planning. We'll work with you every step of the way to ensure you receive the skilled legal counsel you deserve to draft comprehensive estate planning documents that will safeguard your rights and interests, as well as those of your beneficiaries.
