What is a living will? In this article we will discuss using a Living Will to provide for end of life instruction.  This article is the fifth in a series of nine articles explaining the Eight Goals of a Good Estate Plan.

Estate Planning Goal: Appointment of Fiduciaries & Distribution of Assets

In this article, our Tinley Park estate planning attorneys explain the appointment of fiduciaries in your estate planning.  Fiduciaries are individuals who will be responsible for managing the assets of your estate when you pass, such as a trustee if you have a trust or an executor if you have a will. Other fiduciaries include the guardian that you appoint for minor children in your will; and agents appointed in your healthcare power of attorney and financial power of attorney, who will make major decisions for you if you become mentally incompetent through old age, illness, or accident.

Using Revocable Living Trusts to Ensure that Your Estate Avoids Probate

Tinley Park estate planning attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses what probate is, why it is undesirable, and how we use trusts to avoid it.

tinley park estate planning lawyer
tinley park trust lawyer

In this article, our Tinley Park estate planning attorneys explain how we use Revocable Living Trusts to ensure that our clients' estates avoid probate.  Most people who own their home or more than $100,000.00 in other assets will trigger a probate estate when they pass away, unless they have a proper estate plan. Probate is a year long court case, in which the judge oversees the distribution of assets in your estate. We want to avoid probate, because it can suck up a significant amount of the value of your estate in attorney fees and court costs, because your loved ones will not have access to your assets during the pendancy of the case, and because it can add significant stress to an already stressful situation. We explain the use of Revocable Living Trusts to ensure that, when you pass, your loved ones will have immediate access to your assets without the need to hire an attorney.
