Oklahoma City Estate Planning Attorney

What does estate planning involve?

Estate planning is the process by which individuals make arrangements for the disposal of their estate. Estate planning is thus closely related to elder law. Estate planning can involve several complex issues such as probate, taxes, wills, trusts, beneficiary designations, powers of appointment, property ownership, powers of attorney and so forth.

Many individuals do not realize the importance of setting into place an estate plan or the benefits associated with hiring an estate planning attorney. Estate planning is an extremely serious matter and trying to set up these plans alone can be overwhelming, confusing and simply put, can result in significant errors that affect the future of your family. One wrong word or missing signature can change the entire intent of a will or trust.

Why It's Important to Hire a Lawyer

State laws are specific about what can and can't be in a will, trust or medical or financial power of attorney. Laws specify who can and can't serve as a personal representative and who can and can't be a witness to a will or trust and what formalities must be taken when signing a will or trust. Having a qualified attorney on your side can not only give you peace of mind, it can ensure that your affairs are properly put in order.

Some individuals think that they will save significant sums of money by following forms on the internet or buying a do-it-yourself book. Be advised, however, that failing to secure legal assistance can result in part of your will, trust or medical or financial power of attorney being invalid.

Why take the risk? Is it worth saving a few dollars if your loved ones have to spend thousands of dollars to correct your mistakes? An Oklahoma City estate planning lawyer can create the will or trust to protect your estate for the future.
