The Most Complete Revocable Living Trust Package (including the “Legacy Plan”)
Assure the right people will inherit your assets, in the right amounts, at the right times, and upon the terms you designate. The Living Trust not only does this, but avoids court conservatorship and probate proceedings and helps reduce or eliminate federal estate taxes for a married couple. Our cutting-edge “Legacy Plan”℠ enhances the protection of your beneficiaries’ inheritance from spouses, divorces, lawsuits, creditors, loss of government needs-based benefits and additional estate taxes when they pass their inheritance to the next generation.
A backup to the Trust, this Will transfers any assets left outside the Trust at death into it. This Will may also name guardians of your minor children, if any.
Durable Power of Attorney for Property Management
Authorizes someone to manage any property outside the Trust if you become incapacitated and to take certain critical, last minute estate planning actions.
Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare/Advance Health Care Directive
Authorizes the person(s) of your choosing to make health care decisions for you if you become incapacitated. Also includes a Living Will, which may authorize withdrawal of life support when there is an irreversible coma or terminal illness.
Permits the persons that you’ve named to make your medical and financial decisions immediate access to your health information when the need arises, without having to go to court.
Certification of Trust
Summary copy of selected portions of your Living Trust in case a bank or other financial institution requests it when you transfer assets to your Trust.
Title Transfer Guidelines and instruction letters for transferring your assets into your Living Trust. These letters are for use with your financial assets. At the time we sign your Trust, we typically also sign all deeds transferring your Michigan real estate to your Trust.
Your instructions for funeral and burial and for distribution of certain, usually less valuable items of personal property, such as family memorabilia, antiques, jewelry and home furnishings.
