Comprehensive Estate Plan, Pennsylvania estate planning introduction in 2022

Despite what you may think, estate planning should not be complicated. For this reason, attorney Scott Hoh has come up with the Comprehensive Estate Plan, and here is the breakdown for 2022. Estate planning is the process in which one plans for the unexpected, whether it be death, disability, or incapacity. Estate planning can cover the basics but we take it a step further by providing you with 2 wills, 2 powers of attorney, 2 living wills, and a comprehensive estate plan. This is the first of a series of videos where we'll break down the estate planning basics. From medical directives to memorial instructions, document drafting to trusts, we've got you covered.

What is The Purpose of a Probate in Pennsylvania 2022?

The purpose of probate is to legally transfer someone's estate after they die. It may seem simple, but this process involves gathering and identifying all of the person's assets and paying off any of their debts, which can take a significant amount of time and effort. Probate is not always necessary, so speaking with an attorney before entering the probate process can help you to determine whether or not it's needed in your case.

Who Can Make a Will in Pennsylvania 2022?

Anyone can write this document on their own, and as long as it meets all of the legal requirements of the state, courts will recognize the one you wrote yourself. However, if a court finds your will partially or wholly invalid, there can be serious consequences to how your property transfers after your death.  It is always best to have our team look at it and make sure all law changes are up to date.

Welcome to Resolution Law Group in Berks County Pennsylvania - Elder Law

Building an estate can take years of diligent saving and investing. Once you have built up an estate, you'll want to make sure that you preserve its value for your heirs. 
You can also add to or create a valuable estate by using life insurance.
 
Why Create an Estate?
 
Premature death can result in financial difficulties for your survivors. By using life insurance to protect against this outcome, you can rest assured that your heirs will be cared for financially in your absence.  If you wish, you can also ensure that other financial goals are achieved. Because the premature death of a breadwinner could make college savings or mortgage repayment impossible, steps should be taken to prepare for these possibilities.
 
Life insurance provides a cost-effective way to guard against the threat of interrupted financial goals.
 

Our webinar series has kicked off with Legacy of Love - a guide and stories about estate planning, wills, trust, probate, and more.  The benefits of having the best information at your fingertips are many. Attorney Scott G. Hoh sits down for an hour to talk with you about how to be better prepared for life.
