What happens to your estate, who gets control of your assets, and whether it can properly protect and provide for your spouse, children and other loved ones depends on your estate planning. One wrong word on a Deed may change entirely how a parcel of real estate is divided. The failure to have a properly prepared Will could mean that your estate is divided in a way entirely unexpected by you. In other cases, due to the size of the estate, the existence of blended or complicated family situations, or the type of assets in the estate may warrent more elaborate and complicated estate planning.
A probate case is not always something to be feared. With proper planning and a Will, a probate can be your best friend. While there are times when it is important to avoid probate, avoiding probate may not be either necessary or adviseable. In some states, with a proper Will, probate is a relatively inexpensive procedure and may be necessary even with the existence of a Trust or complicated planning. Sadly, expensive estate planning and trusts are often sold to people who don't need either and cost far more that it would cost to prepare a Will and simply go through a probate.
One area of planning that many estate planners forget is "Medicaid Planning". In reality, this is planning for the almost inevitable need for long-term institutional or nursing home care. Many an estate plan is rendered worthless if proper planning for this later long term care is ignored. There is little as painful as to watch a person's estate decimated by the costs of this care, especially when a little advanced planning might allow most of the person's estate plan desired to have still been implemented. But this does require a willingness to plan well before the need for long term care becomes obvious. Read on for some ideas and suggestions in this area. Come learn the ins and outs so that you can be properly prepared.
