Consequences When Attorneys Don’t Listen
Many attorneys consider estate planning as a process of delivering required
documents to their clients in a likely one-time transaction. The team behind Your
Property Law Firm views the process differently. We understand that many
aspects of your life will change as time passes, and the things that were relevant
when you began your estate planning process will most likely modify as time
goes on. Here’s what I mean: the common practice of estate planning is usually
asking clients about their assets and their intentions for the distribution of those
assets. The client is then presented with a will or trust stating those intentions.
While the client does indeed receive an estate plan, the plan often proves to be a
temporary solution that is destined to fail over the course of time. This common
practice overlooks the importance of updating the documents as life progress.
We recognize that our clients will experience life-changes over time. New assets are acquired, while some assets are sold. Marital status can change; a new baby can enter the picture; some clients will start a new business, and some may realize they need to also plan for the care of aging parents. People don’t often realize that as life changes, so does the need to have an updated estate plan. One of my mentors had to deal with the repercussions of this common practice. When she was in law school her father died, and even though her father spent $3,000 on an estate plan, his loved ones ended up in court to settle issues that changed. His estate plan was out of date and the assets were not owned properly. Because our relationship is so important, we make sure to customize each family wealth planning session for your personal needs.
