Estate Planning

As you probably know, actor Heath Ledger died tragically in January of 2008 at the age of 28. And you may have read reports that Heath Ledger’s estate leaves nothing to his former girlfriend and their young daughter because it was drafted in 2003 (3 years before his daughter was born), and was never updated to include them after they became a part of his life.


Estate Planning

Build, manage and preserve your wealth with our full range of estate planning strategies and solutions.

There are many tools you can use to achieve your estate planning goals, but a will is probably the most vital. Even if you’re young or your estate is modest, you should always have a legally valid and up-to-date will. This is especially important if you have minor children because, in many states, your will is the only legal way you can name a guardian for them.

A will can also allow you to:

  • Name an executor to administer your estate according to your wishes.
  • Help minimize estate taxes and other costs.
  • Specify how estate taxes and/or other expenses should be paid.
  • Create a testamentary trust.
  • Fund a living trust.

If you don’t have a will, or haven’t reviewed your will lately, don’t put it off–it’s just too important.

If you have questions or need help getting started, talk to your CPA or one of our financial planning consultants.
