Estate Planning is Not a “Do It Yourself” Affair
You may be familiar with the DIY estate planning kits advertised on the internet. They are selling a way they claim can save you money. But with estate planning you won’t ever know in your lifetime whether you did it right on your own. Doing it yourself doesn’t account for the cost of your time either. The odds are stacked against you getting in right and your family and loved ones will be the ones who are harmed by mishandled estate planning that can have undesirable results, often litigation, and sometimes ruptures to personal relationships among those left behind. Rarely will a kit anticipate properly the particular laws of Oklahoma that will impact your estate. Turn to someone reliable who you can trust to get things right: Consult with a Stillwater estate planning attorney from Wirth Law Office in Payne County.
Two Key Objectives in Estate Planning
Although estate planning is not a simple matter, we can make it easier for you to understand and help you direct the process to get to the results you want. We start by helping our clients organize their planning around two key objectives: (1) Minimizing taxation of estate assets; and (2) Avoiding probate.
First, we use our experience and expertise to help reduce or eliminate death taxes. Secondly, your Stillwater attorney can advise you about legal instruments and planning techniques that help avoid probate.
Meeting these objectives are among the first and best steps to ensuring you can have as many and as much of your assets handled the way you want as possible and helps avoid the costly, inefficient and often contentious results of probate proceedings.
