Estate Planning in San Marcos

Avoid Probate

 If you think that estate planning is a tool for the rich or the elderly alone, it’s time to think again. People of any age can benefit from having a game plan. If you should die suddenly without first setting up a trust or writing a will, then the state will distribute your assets for you in accordance with local laws, and they will do this with no regard for what you might have wanted. Worse, the process could be held up in probate for months or even years, thus forcing those you love to wait much longer to receive their inheritances.
