Is It Time To Protect Your Assets with an Estate Plan?

Discover how you can avoid these classic estate planning mistakes:

  1. Nursing Home Costs: Protect your assets from $8,000 per month in nursing home bills. Learn why traditional estate plans won’t help and the type of plan that will.
  2. Divorce: How to safeguard your children’s inheritance from divorce.  Imagine 50% of your assets walking out the door with your ex in-law!
  3. Remarriage: What blended families must do right away to avoid disinheriting each other and/or their separate children.
  4. Money Worries: Learn how to preserve your IRA or 401k—keep in mind most adult children will spend your IRA within 6 months of your death (unless you plan)!
  5. Incapacity: Avoid a publicly humiliating and expensive guardianship proceeding if you become legally incapacitated or disabled.
  6. Family Dynamics: How to plan for special needs kids and grandkids, and how to bulletproof your children’s inheritances from debts, taxes, lawsuits, medical expenses, and irresponsible lifestyles.
  7. Probate: How to avoid potential delays of 1 year or more and how to eliminate or minimize substantial court, attorney and executor fees.
