You do not need to be wealthy to require estate planning services. Even a modest number of assets can tie up court systems if you die without a will or other estate plan. Also, it is impossible to assure support for family members or build charitable legacies unless your estate plan is in writing.
At Alyssa A. Herbold, P.L.C., I examine your circumstances to find the best estate plan possible for your goals and needs. You may have a favorite cause or a dependent family member who requires long-term support. Using wills and trusts, we can secure your plans. Depending on the circumstances, other tools in the law may more effectively achieve your goals.
Estate planning can make other wishes known too. A power of attorney designates an agent to handle your affairs if you become incapacitated. If you want friends and family members to know your preferences in medical treatment, you can execute a health care power of attorney or advance medical directive. This allows your wishes respect and offers peace of mind to friends and family.
I am located in Cherokee, Iowa and serve clients in the surrounding counties. Contact me today to schedule an estate planning consultation.
