Many people believe that estate planning is just for those who have a lot of money or assets. However, you may be surprised to learn what a will or an estate plan can do for you and your family.
From two locations in Greenwood and Noblesville, The Law Offices of Brian Schellenberg provides legal assistance to individuals and families throughout central Indiana.
Allowing You To Make Decisions About Your Future With Estate Planning
Estate planning allows you to take control of your assets and your future. Rather than having a state court judge divide your estate — no matter the size — equally among your closest family members, you can choose who obtains portions of your estate, as well as when and how.
For example, you may wish to leave a portion of your assets to a favorite charity. You can also delay a distribution to a child, choosing a date in the future so your child has a chance to grow up a bit more.
Who Makes The Decisions When You Can't?
An estate plan also allows you to determine what happens to you in case of incapacity. Certain estate planning documents let you choose who will make medical and financial decisions for you if you are no longer able to do so yourself.
