  1. What is Estate Planning? Estate planning is the process of arranging and organizing your assets and personal affairs to ensure that your wishes are carried out in the event of incapacity or death. It involves creating legal documents such as wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and health care proxies that outline how your assets will be distributed, who will make decisions on your behalf, and how your medical care will be managed. Estate planning also aims to minimize taxes, avoid probate, and protect your loved ones and assets.
  2. Avoiding Probate: Probate is the legal process of validating a will and administering the estate of a deceased person. It can be time-consuming, costly, and public. Through effective estate planning, you can implement strategies to avoid or minimize probate, allowing for a smoother transfer of assets to your loved ones while preserving privacy and reducing potential conflicts.
  3. Minimizing Taxes: Taxes can significantly impact the value of your estate and the assets left for your loved ones. As part of our expertise in estate planning, Merrigan & Merrigan can help you explore various strategies to minimize estate taxes, gift taxes, and other potential tax liabilities. By implementing tax-efficient plans, you can maximize the benefits your loved ones receive and leave a lasting legacy.
  4. Comprehensive Property Divisions: One of the primary goals of estate planning is to ensure that your property is distributed according to your wishes. Whether you have specific assets you want to pass on to certain individuals or need to provide for your dependents, Merrigan & Merrigan will carefully consider your circumstances and help you create a comprehensive plan that safeguards your intentions. We will work closely with you to understand your goals and design the appropriate legal mechanisms to achieve them.
