RG Skadberg of CCSK Law: Your Valparaiso Estate Planning Attorney
Too many people think that estate planning is only necessary for the wealthy, so they do not do it. Others put it off because it is not an easy topic to discuss.
An estate plan is important to do while you have the capacity to make one. This allows you to make your wishes known, and to give the people you want the authority to make decisions on your behalf. It might be time to update your estate plan due to a change in your life situation. Sure, most of us would rather not think of the why we are making an estate plan, but it is important to come to the terms with the fact that an estate plan is a better alternative for your family than leaving no plan.

The Estate Planning Process – Explained
Estate plans are not only for the wealthy. Nor is it ever too early to start the estate planning process–there’s no better time to start than today! The process begins by answering a few simple questions. Attorney RG Skadberg starts the planning process by breaking it down to 5 Essential Documents and 5 Essential Questions.
Your estate plan covers two primary parts: – Decision-Makers, and – Determination of how, and to whom, assets are to be distributed.
Many times, people procrastinate estate planning because there are confusing terms or conflicting information coming from different sources. Often, the legal community keeps the terms and their descriptions in legalese, which causes discomfort in a person seeking an estate plan solution. The other concern is “What will all of this cost?”
Attorney RG Skadberg lowers the hurdles of confusing terms, complicated structures, and fear of big expense. RG breaks down the process into manageable parts: – Evaluation in simple, plain English terms, – Casual conversations about your goals and concerns, and – Pricing based on your needs, not the value of your estate.
You will be given options to consider – in terms you can understand. The options include the legal tools and techniques to address your goals and concerns as well as the cost to complete each option. You will understand why a Trust, Will, Transfer on Death, and Powers of Attorney are included or not.
Ultimately, the hurdles are lowered. You are in control. You will understand how the options work for you. And, you will make the decision as to the solution you choose.
Keeping An Estate Plan Up-To-Date
Since your assets and relationships will certainly change over time, it is important to have your estate plan up-to-date to ensure it is still relevant. Failure to employ a well-crafted, current estate plan can result in:
Time and expense associated with Probate
Out of date Wills or Powers of Attorney
Court-Appointed Guardians to make decisions
Assets not being distributed as intended.
The best way to guarantee the longevity of your assets and legacy is to have an airtight estate plan that can be created by a Valparaiso estate planning attorney.
