Estate Planning in Louisiana
A common misconception many people have when it comes to estate planning is, “my estate is not large enough for me to do any formal planning.” Nothing can be farther from the truth. In fact, a person and family of modest means can benefit the most from skilled estate planning.
Everyone has an “estate.” Your estate consists of everything you own at the time of your death which includes your home, automobiles, jewelry, artwork, furniture, collectibles, bank accounts, investment accounts, land, and so on.
Creating a sound estate plan allows you to take control of vital matters involving your property by directing how and to whom your estate passes upon your death. A lack of estate planning may cause your estate to pass in way which you do not want and never intended, with negative emotional and financial consequences to be suffered by your loved ones once you have passed.
