We’re Here To Help; Understanding Estate Planning – Estate planning focuses on transferring a person’s estate at the time of their death. An “estate” consists of all property owned at death before it’s distribution by a will, trust, or state law. You don’t need to be wealthy to have an estate plan.
When the time comes to probate one’s will or estate, we’re here. The probate process appoints the executor, who is in charge of identifying estate assets and debts, and ultimately paying beneficiaries. Everything the executor does will be audited during probate, which can be intimidating.
Thinking Ahead – Small businesses are often referred to as the backbone of the country. However, upwards of 70% of family-owned businesses don’t survive the transition of power, usually from the founder to the second generation. There are more than 10 million small business owners in America, and each of them has felt the pressure that comes with the territory. In the hustle and bustle of day to day operations, it can be challenging to remember to sit down and coordinate a succession plan.
