Helping Put Your Wishes In Writing

No matter your age or assets, it's important to understand that estate planning tools like wills and trusts are critical documents. At Anderson Hew PLLC we can walk you through your options to help you make a decision that is in your family's best interests.

Everyone Needs A Will

One of the most common assumptions people make is that they don't need a last will and testament if they're young and healthy. People often think that wills are only necessary if they are wealthy. Unfortunately, these misconceptions mean that many people pass away without having taken the steps to protect their loved ones.

If you have minor children, a will is especially important. Without a will, a court will determine who raises your child. Not only does this mean that your child may not end up with the person you would prefer, but this type of situation usually causes families to fight during an already difficult time.

From children to pets to homes, without a will, you lose control over the things you love the most.

What Kind Of Trust Do I Need?

Trusts are often established to help protect property and assets. Whether you are looking to set up a trust or you have been appointed the trustee of an existing trust, we can help you understand the intricacies.

Some of the more common trusts include:

  • Revocable trusts: You have access to the assets while you are alive, but you enable your beneficiary to avoid a complicated probate process down the road.
  • Special needs trusts: This allows you to set aside funds for a person who is disabled while also protecting their access to government benefits.
  • Irrevocable trusts: By permanently giving up your rights and ownership to certain assets, you protect them from creditors as well as helping yourself qualify for government benefits such as Medicaid.

We take the time to get to know your individual needs so we can help you make the right choice for your personal situation.
