Is My Estate Too Small for Planning?
A common misconception surrounding estate planning is that it’s only for the wealthy. All estates–no matter their size– are subject to Ohio probate laws. Thus, all families can benefit from estate planning to minimize the taxes and emotional burdens that accompany the loss or extensive medical needs of a loved one.
When should I start estate planning?
It’s never too early to create a will and estate plan. The loss of a loved one comes with enough stress and grief without adding the additional worries of navigating Ohio probate laws alone. Likewise, trying to get legal documents in place once you or a loved one is facing a serious illness can complicate the process.
