Prepare for Anything with Will and Estate Planning for Mt. Pleasant SC

Life often presents us with unexpected challenges. Sometimes those challenges can be financial, and other times they can be more personal. However, when a death happens in the family, it’s best to be prepared. And with will and estate planning for Mt. Pleasant SC, you can prepare for a smooth legal transition from one family member to the next. Call Buxton & Collie, LLC today, and we’ll help you start the planning process.

The Importance of Planning

It cannot be stressed enough how important estate planning is for you and your family. Without wills and trusts in place, you place the division of your estate in the hands of the state. And through probate law, you’re much less likely to get your preferred arrangements.

  • Avoid Extra Costs
    • While there is some expense involved with estate planning, you risk losing much more if you don’t establish a will or trust. There’s sometimes little left over to inherit from steep taxes on your estate to the costs associated with probate. And after the death of a loved one, it’s not right for you and your family to be put through more stress and financial strain.
  • Your Choice Matters
    • Furthermore, if you let probate take over for the division of your estate, you forfeit much of the decision-making regarding how assets are divided. An attorney can help you keep control of your estate by legally establishing inheritors or trustees through a will and trust. Having these plans in place also saves time when it finally comes down to the division of assets.
  • Place Your Trust in Who You Prefer
    • Besides the will and estate planning in Mt. Pleasant SC, we can assist you in choosing a durable power of attorney. This step is made so that decisions can be made on your behalf by a responsible third party if you are incapacitated. Whether a spouse, child, relative or friend, you can place someone you trust in control of financial or health decisions that directly affect you.
