An Estate Plan For Your Future
It is always hard to think about the future and come to terms that your family may have to live without you. You may wonder what would happen to your family, children, possessions or home if you cannot provide for your loved ones in the event of your passing.
The law offers legal tools to address all of those concerns and prepare yourself and your loved ones for facing the future. I am attorney Carrie Ulrich, and I am ready to help you draft an estate plan to give certainty to your loved ones before you pass.
Growing up in a family in a rural area, I understood how helpful estate planning could be to avoid issues among family members or other interested parties. My commitment is to assist Washington families in protecting what they care about the most.
Drafting The Estate Plan You Need
An estate plan is by far one of the best options to make your wishes known, but it includes a series of complex documents that are best handled by a lawyer. In addition, if a will or trust is poorly drafted, it may lead to costly trouble in the future. At the Orchid Law, in Seattle, I will walk you through your options and help you make informed decisions to fulfill your final wishes.
The benefits of even the most basic will include naming a guardian for your children and determining who will receive your possessions or your home after your passing. In addition, an estate plan may also include the following documents:
- A living will or medical directive to leave instructions to health care professionals about the treatments you would like to follow
- A durable power of attorney to, for example, name someone you trust to manage your finances or health care instructions
- A will to name guardians for your children under 18 years of age, dependent adults, the distribution of your assets, personal belongings and instructions to pay your debts
- A trust to include to whom your real estate or other assets will pass after your death
My priority is your welfare. I have affordable fees and flexible availability to discuss your needs in-depth. I will be happy to adjust your appointments to whatever day and hour work for you.
