Planning your estate is an essential step in ensuring that you and your loved ones are protected in the event of your death or mental incapacitation. Estate planning is much like adding layers of security to your family, yourself, and your assets.
Without proper planning, your assets may be tied up in probate court for a year or more. Additionally, there are ways to structure Trusts and assets so that your heirs do not get a reduced inheritance due to estate taxes or creditors.
If you are a business owner, or if you have complex family situations, planning your estate clearly and in accordance with Michigan laws is essential for your wishes to be carried out accordingly. At Michigan Premier Law, P.C., we use our expertise to help you craft a plan for your estate so that you can rest assured that your assets will be handled properly.
