Create an Estate Plan that protects your last wishes, your family, and your legacy.
Premium estate planning perfectly tailored to your unique needs, family and goals.
We understand the importance of creating a plan that reflects your last wishes and final instructions. Our focus is on helping families plan for the unexpected, so that they maximize asset protection, minimize potential tax liabilities, and ensure their family has the best path forward.
An estate plan is your opportunity to give instructions on what you would like to happen if you were ever incapacitated or pass. It allows your loved ones to understand without question what you want to happen, which lifts the burden off of their shoulders.
If you don’t make these decisions now, someone else will make them later. If something happens without an estate plan, Colorado’s intestate laws outline who will inherit your property and who will control your assets. Doing nothing now, means all of these decisions will be made by a judge later.
A better word for estate planning is family planning. We help you create a plan for the future that ensures your last wishes are carried out exactly as you wish and your family knows what to do next.
An estate plan helps you protect your loved ones by saving them from the chaos of court and the uncertainty of not knowing what to do if you are gone. If you do not have a Will that outlines what you want to happen if you are incapacitated or pass away, a judge will decide.
At Right Law Group, we help you create a plan that reflects exactly what you want to happen when it’s time. Want to know how we can help you?
Decide what you want… Who will be your beneficiaries? Who do you want to give your assets to? Who will make decisions for you if you cannot do it yourself? Understanding what you want now will make the estate planning process easier.
Talk to a lawyer… A Colorado Springs Estate Planning Attorney will help you understand exactly what documents you will need — and how they need to be drafted — to enforce your last wishes and make sure everything outlined in your plan would happen if you were incapacitated or passed away.
Create an estate plan… This is the part where you sit down with an attorney and your estate plan is drafted, in compliance with Colorado State laws. Afterwards, your estate plan becomes a legal document that is enforceable and will hold up in court if your last wishes are ever challenged.
Get peace of mind… With your estate plan in place, you know who will make medical and financial decisions on your behalf. You’ve outlined your beneficiaries and you know what will go to who and when they will receive it. Everything you outlined will happen and you get peace of mind knowing your family will be protected from the chaos of court and uncertainty if you are not there.
If you do not have an estate plan, you will not have control what happens to you if you are incapacitated, which means a court will appoint someone to make those decisions, and that person may not be the one you want making medical or financial decisions on your behalf. Also, if you die without a Last Will and Testament, you will have no control on who your will receive your assets. Without a Will, the Colorado courts will follow intestate laws to determine what next of kin should receive your property.
Every good estate plan should include the following: Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, a DNR order, Living Trust, an inventory of your property and financial accounts. This is by no means an exhaustive list. If you have children, there are other considerations you need to make. Talk to us today to learn what your estate plan should include.
