Should you have a revocable trust?

People in Michigan who are looking to manage their assets may want to consider a revocable trust. Also known as a living trust, this is a popular tool people use for estate planning. In addition to a will, a trust helps many protect their money while they are still alive as well as after they have passed away. While a living trust is a good choice for many, people should also consider its downfalls before making a decision.

Choosing a power of attorney

Choosing the right power of attorney in Michigan is important for a number of reasons. Finding a trustworthy person and filling out the proper paperwork is essential for things to go smoothly in the event something happens and the chosen person needs to make important decisions on behalf of the principal.

Working through a will contest

When it comes to estate matters, there are an array of hurdles that can arise. Sometimes, people run into problems during the estate planning process, while families may face difficulties after a loved one has passed away. In Rochester, and in cities across all of Michigan, beneficiaries and executors may face challenge due to a will contest. At Bebout, Potere, Cox & Bennion, P.C., we understand how essential it is for you to work through a will contest appropriately, regardless of the unique details of your circumstances.

With so many options, where do you start your estate planning?

There are a lot of options available in estate planning, and readers may understandably not know what to choose. What's important to remember is that most choices are not mutually exclusive. Said another way, a comprehensive estate claim may contain several tools, including a last will and testament, one or more trusts, an advanced health care directive, and a financial power of attorney.

The holiday season is a perfect time to draw up your estate plan

The holiday is an opportunity to spend more time with family and loved ones. Those warm thoughts may inspire the giving of gifts. Our estate planning law firm also hopes that the spirit of the season will motivate individuals to protect their loved ones with an estate plan.

Could a living revocable trust be right for your estate plan?

Our law firm focuses on estate planning. One of the tools that we recommend to many clients is a living revocable trust. This type of trust offers many benefits, including the avoidance of probate. Best of all, the creator/owner of the trust can change his or her mind at any time, without consequences. A simple document, indicating a restatement of trust, can make those changes happen.
