How can I prepare for my initial consultation with an estate planning attorney?

Arrow icon

To prepare for your initial consultation, it will help to compile a list of your assets, your existing estate planning documents, information about your family structure, and any specific goals or concerns you have. This information will help your attorney offer more specific and actionable advice.

Are there alternatives to a traditional will in estate planning?

Arrow icon

Possible alternatives to a traditional will include trusts, joint ownership arrangements, and designating beneficiaries on accounts like retirement funds and life insurance policies. These tools and strategies can sometimes offer more flexibility and help you avoid probate.

How often should I review and update my estate plan?

Arrow icon

It's recommended that you review and update your estate plan every three to five years or whenever you experience significant life changes, such as marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, or a substantial change in assets.
