Estate Planning Lawyers in Colorado Springs
Experienced Estate Planning Attorneys Protecting Your Family’s Future
Many people are guilty of putting off estate planning for longer than they should. For many of us, estate planning is something we hope to get to but never seems urgent. When estate planning seems urgent, however, it may be too late. The purpose of estate planning is to create guidelines for your loved ones and others about how you want your assets, medical care, and other matters to be handled when you are no longer here or no longer able to make those decisions for yourself. At Drexler Law in Colorado Springs, we can help you create the sound legal documents you need to ensure your wishes are upheld.
If you are going through a divorce, it is important to update your estate planning documents to reflect this change. Our Colorado Springs estate planning attorneys can help.
Why Is Estate Planning Important?
Having an estate plan enables you to manage or distribute your property in the event you become incapacitated, pass away, get married, or divorced. Estate planning takes the burden off of your loved ones in such event. An estate plan may include a will, a trust, a durable power of attorney for finances and health care, a living will, life insurance, an assignment of survivorship rights, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, burial instructions, anatomical gift forms, and other legal documents, such as beneficiary deeds.
Without an estate plan, your loved ones will be forced to make difficult decisions about how to distribute your sets. They may also be put in the difficult position of guessing how you would like your end- of-life care to be handled.
An estate plan allows you to make these decisions and others in advance so your family members don't have to. A strong estate plan is also an effective way to protect your wishes if you feel strongly about certain matters.
