Estate Planning That Fits What You Need When You Need It
Nobody likes thinking about death. That’s a given. And it’s even less appealing to think about what will happen to all our stuff after we die. After all, we’ll be gone, right? We won’t care.
Well, yes and no. I started my firm Justin C. Pugh & Associates because I recognized that experience, honesty, and open communication are key. We are all intimidated by big firms and their big-firm prices. So I work to keep my rates accessible, and I work one-on-one with every client, no matter what.
The No. 1 Way To Prevent Family Feuds
Disputes over the property of loved ones are very common for American families. Why? Because people put off making a will or trust until it’s too late. Then family members are left to wonder what was intended. And this, in many cases, causes fights, misunderstandings and even lifelong feuds.
For example, in 2020, less than a third of the U.S. population reported having a will or another estate planning document. By planning today, you protect your loved ones from costly and difficult litigation. And it doesn’t have to be painful or morbid.
I can help you with several types of planning tools. These tools include:
- Wills, also called a last will and testament. Wills can include who should care for your minor children, who is your designated power of attorney and who you want to serve as your health care proxy.
- Living wills, also called “health care directives.” These documents tell your family and medical providers what types of care you want to receive and the types of care you do not want to receive should you become incapacitated.
- Trusts, which can help your estate avoid Connecticut probate.
- A guardianship/conservatorship designation for an elderly adult who is unable to manage their finances or care.
- Other estate planning documents.
Your Estate And Your Wishes Matter
What you want is important to those who love you. Don’t make them guess as to what you would have wanted done, or who you would have chosen to make important decisions. Get it all down on paper and filed now. That way there’s no second-guessing, no misunderstandings and certainly no feuds.
