Estate Planning Does Not Have To Be A Difficult Process
While many people know that they should have some form of an estate plan, estate planning is often delayed or even avoided because it can be emotionally difficult to think of death or leaving their loved ones behind. Without an estate plan in Nevada, your assets will be distributed under Nevada’s intestacy statutes after your death. Nevada’s intestacy statutes, in effect, form a will that the state legislature has written for you. These intestacy laws dictate how your assets will be distributed when you die and may direct your assets to family members you had no intention of benefiting. Also, intestacy may have devastating estate tax consequences, expose your estate to publicity, cause delays in settling the affairs of your estate, cause unnecessary cost and expense, allow someone you do not want to manage your estate be placed into that role and create other adverse and unexpected consequences.
Adverse consequences can be avoided by creating an estate plan. An estate plan is critical to safeguarding your wealth, passing your wealth to your intended beneficiaries, protecting your wishes as to who should raise your children, respecting your intent as to who should manage your estate, minimizing taxes and the cost and expense to settle the affairs of your estate and helping avoid delays in settling the affairs of your estate. An estate plan can also provide you with peace of mind about how your financial and health care decisions will be made if you become incapacitated.
