Responsibly Pass on Family Wealth
Your family wealth is more than just money. It's stories, ideas, history, and love. And of course it's money. You want to preserve and protect everything so that your children, grandchildren, and great-great-great grandchildren who settle Mars will know how they got to where they are. You want to make sure that each generation will be better off than the previous generation, whether that's by growing in love, philanthropy, business, arts, or whatever is important to you and your family. You want to consciously build that legacy, consciously protect it, and consciously pass it on. And we want to make sure that you can make that happen - responsibly.
Apply to be an Executor or Administrator of an Estate
After a person dies, someone has to apply to probate the will and become the executor. Probate? It's a court process where a person become the executor or administrator of an estate. And it's hard. It's like trying to juggle plates, without ever learning how to juggle. And there isn't a single clown in sight.
It's hard to be an executor. It sounds like a big fancy title, but all it comes with is a lot of responsibility and angry relatives. It's even harder when it's a close family member, like a parent, a spouse, a sibling - or worse a child.
Discover how you can be the best executor or administrator you can be. We'll be there to help you every step of the way.
Administer an Estate After a Loved One Dies
After you've been appointed as the executor or the administrator, you have to actually manage and administer the estate. It's time to actually do some things. Maybe you've picked up a book online or at the library, but it just sounds like a bunch of gibberish - and they kept talking about California law, not New Jersey or Pennsylvania law. What good is that?
Being an executor or administrator is a lot about papers, documents, phone calls, and part-time counsellor as you try to soothe the emotions of family members who feel that they were left out.
Don't worry, you got this! We're here to help!
Protect Assets from Creditors
Sometimes building a legacy means taking risks and you need to be free to takes those risks. Asset protection is a fancy word for a financial and legal strategy where you arrange everything you own in ways that they are protected so you're free to take the risks you need to grow a business, raise a family, get remarried, or pursue other professional dreams. We want to enable you to takes these risks safely, securely, and with the knowledge that by you're not risking everything.
Maximize Tax Exemptions and Benefits
Say goodbye to missing out on deductions and exemptions. Sure, we can't help you avoid paying taxes, but you can legally delay them through strategic planning, property exchanges, spousal transfers, and other qualified transfers. Does that mean you won't pay taxes, of course not. But, you should only be paying the taxes that you have to.
Document Your Medical Decisions and Ensure Medical Independence
Medical decisions and costs can become a landmine if you leave your family to debate or make decisions on your behalf. And this isn't only for the "end of life" care, this is for your whole life. You have opinions, options, and choices and you'd like to make sure that your wishes regarded your care are acknowledged and followed.
