Wills, Trusts and Estate Law is the area of practice that gives an individual the power to decide who will receive assets, money and property after your death. It also helps to protect assets if you become ill, and to choose who will be in charge of an individual's money and property. It also allows an individual to dictate decisions surrounding potential difficult health and financial issues.
The mechanism by which a person states his or her plans, is a Last Will and Testament. This serves as instructions as to who receives money and property upon your death and appoints the person of your choosing to serve as the representative of your Estate throughout the Estate Probate (Administration if no Will is in place) Process to ensure that your wishes are carries out.
Estate planning through a trust is another way to manage your financial matters. There are many types of trusts depending on your needs and the needs of the people you want to share your money and property with. Additional security managing your money and health decisions can be achieved through a power of attorney, healthcare proxy or living will.
