Wills & Trust Attorney for Estate Planning
Whether it involves a first or second marriage, our goal is to help you create an effective and efficient plan that encourages resolution and reconciliation, not litigation and dissension.
- Make a will. If you fail to declare who receives what after you pass away, your family is in for a meticulous battle. This includes both financial and nonfinancial assets, like furniture, jewelry, keepsakes, etc.
- Specify ways in which your money should be spent. If you’re planning on leaving aside a particular sum of money for a child’s marriage, for example, you’ll want to create a trust that outlines those wishes.
- Try and reduce income and estate taxes. Work with an estate planning attorney to create a tax-efficient plan. We’ll work out a strategy so your beneficiaries pay little to no taxes on their inheritance. A great way to offset taxes is with a life insurance policy.
- Hire an estate planning team. To ensure that you have the best financial plan in place, work with an estate planning attorney, tax professional, and financial adviser.
Should estate planning litigation becomes necessary, we provide substantial experience and aggressive pursuit of equity in a cost-effective manner. However, we encourage those pursuing a second marriage to have a logical discussion with their spouse about the estate planning process. If the conversation seems too uncomfortable, it’s helpful to get a third perspective from a law firm. Here at The Delaney Law Firm in Bluffton, SC, we help couples through the estate planning process, creating a plan that works for everyone.
