Why hire Pile Law Firm here in Southeastern Pennsylvania to help
with your estate planning? Because effective estate planning involves judgment
and skills gained only through professional training and experience. Wills and
trusts produced by using kits or software from home may not comply with
Pennsylvania State Laws. If not properly drafted, your estate may not be
distributed according to your wishes. Also, your family may incur legal costs
should the will or trust be challenged. Consulting E.
Nego Pile will ensure that your estate planning needs and desires
are properly met.
Benefits of an Estate Plan
There are many benefits in establishing an estate plan. One
such benefit is providing for incapacity. If you become incapacitated, you may not be capable of managing your own heath and financial affairs, and you may need someone to assist you with these decisions. If you do not have a power of attorney or the proper planning in place, your family may need to petition a court to declare you
legally incapacitated and seek guardianship to assist you, causing added stress on your family members. It is important that you include a durable financial power of attorney and an advance health care directive in your estate plan. The law allows you to
appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf about financial and medical
treatment options if you lose the ability to decide for yourself.
Another benefit is that you can avoid probate with a sound estate
plan in place. If you don't properly plan for the distribution of your property and assets, your property
may pass through probate, a process which can be expensive, time consuming and
public. If you are married with children, you will want to be sure your family
has immediate access to your resources in order to pay for living expenses while your estate is
If you have minor children, it is important that your estate
plan address issues regarding their care. A contingency plan should be
put into place for the
guardian you would nominate to provide this care. You have the flexibility of appointing anyone you trust to be the guardian. Without nominating a guardian for your children, a court may be forced to make this decision for you.
