The Importance of Will and Estate Planning for Charleston SC

While we always want to look on the bright side of life, it’s still just as important to be prepared for the worst. And in the case of will and estate planning for Charleston SC, you can be prepared for the unfortunate reality of mortality. However, by ensuring you have an estate plan in place, you put your family and loved ones first. And with help from Buxton & Collie, LLC, we make estate planning a straightforward process.

What We Focus On

To make sure your estate plan is as beneficial to you and your family as possible, we focus on aspects we believe to be the most essential. For example, our law firm will address:

  • How Much Control Can You Maintain?
    • Arguably, it’s difficult for the head of an estate to have much control over their assets once they’ve passed. However, with will and estate planning for Charleston SC, that doesn’t have to be the case. Having your desires documented and confirmed by an attorney, the courts or individuals can’t question your final requests.
  • Who Has the Most to Gain?
    • We understand how important it is for those estate planning to designate where their assets will end up. Otherwise, with no plan in place, you risk your estate mainly being enveloped and divided by probate. Conversely, if you wish for your assets to benefit those you love and care for, we can make sure your requests are met through a will and trust.
  • How Much Can Your Family Keep?
    • Another downside to allowing probate law to take over your estate is the amount the state will likely tax or bill you. From estate taxes, property taxes, probate costs and more, there are surprise fees that slowly chip away at what’s remaining of the deceased’s estate. And if you want those assets going to good use, you need a lawyer who can set a legal plan in place.
