Estate Planning Attorneys in Dubuque
Helping You Prepare for the Future
It is a common misconception that estate planning is only for the wealthy. However, no matter how many or how few assets you have, you can benefit from creating an estate plan. You can never know what the future holds, which is why it is crucial to work on a plan that ensures your wishes are respected if you ever become incapacitated or pass away. At Pearson Bollman Law in Dubuque, our estate planning and probate team can provide the guidance and advice you need to navigate this essential process.
Creating an Estate Plan
There are a lot of elements involved in creating an estate plan, which our team can assist you with.
When creating an estate plan, here are some questions you can ask to assist in creating an estate plan that will meet your specific goals:
- Are you trying to protect your spouse and children?
- Are you trying to avoid probate?
- Do you have a family business or farm you wish to leave for your children?
- Are you trying to protect your assets from creditors or lawsuits?
- Are you trying to protect your children’s inheritance from potentially failed marriages?
There are many parts involved in an estate plan and, depending on your needs and goals, yours may include the following:
- Financial power of attorney
- Healthcare power of attorney
- Living will
If you were to become incapacitated, having a power of attorney, someone whom you trust and who understands your wishes can be crucial for ensuring your healthcare and financial wishes are respected. Additionally, if you have minor children, having a will in place will allow you to assign a guardian for them in case you and their other parent pass.
