Many people mistakenly believe that wills and estate plans are needed only by wealthy, older adults. However, they are mistaken. Planning for the future is appropriate for adults of all ages and levels of income.

At the Niceville Law Office of Michael D. Weinstock, P.A., we will explain how an estate plan and will can help provide security to your family and provide you with peace about your future. Obtaining these documents now will help you plan for the future; that's why they are called plans.

What Can Estate Planning Do For Me?

Estate planning is designed to allow individuals to distribute their assets according to their wishes after they are gone. For some people, estate planning is also focused on keeping the estate out of probate court and keeping taxes and expenses to a minimum.

In addition to addressing the management and disposition of your assets, estate planning can specify your wishes regarding life support, and how your care and management of your assets should be handled if you become incapacitated. Additionally, if you have minor children, you can designate who will care for them if you are no longer able to do so.
