Estate Planning Services - Birch Grove Legal

Life is Unpredictable – We’re Here to Make a Plan

Life is full of ups and downs; without a proper plan, your loved ones could be set for a real struggle. For Denver estate planning, Birch Grove Legal is your tried-and-true partner in helping protect your assets and your family’s future. Our team is here to take you through every step of the estate planning process with personalized care to your wishes.

What is Estate Planning?

No one likes to plan for the future and what could happen, but it’s wise to consider how you’d like your hard-earned property and assets distributed ahead of time if you’re unable to make those decisions anymore. Estate planning involves creating legal documentation, including power of attorney, wills, and trusts. Each document reduces uncertainty, minimizes taxes, avoids family disputes, and ensures that your loved ones are cared for in the way you desire.

Who Needs Estate Planning?

Estate planning is not just for people near the end of their life. In particular, estate planning is helpful for those who are in the following situations:

People with Major Assets:

Those with significant assets or businesses need estate planning to manage and distribute them efficiently while reducing taxes and probate.

Blended Families:

Families with children from different relationships need estate planning to distribute assets fairly among all members.

Health or End-of-Life Directives:

People with strong health or end-of-life preferences should create advance directives or a power of attorney to ensure their choices are respected.

Parents with Children:

Parents with young kids need to appoint guardians to ensure proper care in case of incapacity or passing.

Benefits of Estate Planning Services 

Estate planning is all about protecting your family’s future and making sure your wishes are respected. By planning, you can avoid common pitfalls, save money, and give your loved ones the clarity they need during challenging times. Here are some key benefits of working with us:

1. Peace of Mind for You and Your Family

Estate planning brings peace of mind by outlining your wishes clearly. This way, there’s no ambiguity about who gets what, reducing stress for your loved ones. You can rest easy knowing everything’s covered, from property distribution to guardianship of minors.

2. Minimize Family Conflicts

Careful estate planning can help prevent misunderstandings, potential fights, and even court battles. By having a clear and legally binding plan, you reduce the chances of disputes among family members, creating a smoother transition during difficult times.

3. Efficient Transfer of Assets

An estate plan streamlines the process of asset distribution. It can reduce taxes and fees, allowing wealth to go to your chosen beneficiaries. This efficiency saves time and money, benefiting everyone involved.

4. Maintain Control Over Healthcare and Financial Decisions

Estate planning includes setting up healthcare directives and powers of attorney, ensuring your preferences are honored. By appointing trusted individuals to make decisions when you’re unable to, you maintain control over your healthcare and financial matters, even when you can’t speak for yourself.

Frequently Asked Estate Planning Questions

Some of the common questions asked by our clients about estate planning and our functions include:

What is a will?

A will is a legal document in which a person details the recipients of his property in case of his demise. It may also detail the naming of the guardian for minor children and an executor to settle the estate.

What is a recovable living trust?

A revocable living trust is a legal document that allows you to manage your assets during your lifetime and distribute them after your death. You can change or revoke it at any time while you're alive.

How is a Trust Different From a Will?

A trust can be effective during your lifetime, allowing you to avoid probate, whereas a will is only effective after your death and usually has to go through probate. Trusts offer more flexibility and control of asset distribution than wills, while wills are more straightforward and less costly to establish.

What is the best age to start planning for an estate?

Though there is no best-set age to start estate planning, it would be wise to initiate the same as soon as you own considerable assets or responsibilities like owning a property, getting married, or having children. In fact, a basic estate plan can be of help to even a young adult.
