Basic Wills and Powers of Attorney
Don't be that person who leaves his or her family behind without a coordinated plan. Even if you don't have an "estate" that requires complex planning, everyone benefits from a basic understanding of the process and appropriate documents which allow loved ones to care for you when you can't care for yourself, transfer assets as easily as possible upon your death, avoid probate, clarify who has the authority to act for you and what powers they have, and avoid disputes among family members. As a Spokane estate planning attorney, I talk you through the various issues to come up with a plan that fits your specific needs most efficiently. We often complete the Washington will and estate planning process remotely by phone, email, or video conferencing.
If you already have estate planning documents in place (great job, for being on top of your game), the general recommendation is that you review them at least every 3-5 years. Even if you don't meet me to review them for you, pull the documents out for yourself and confirm everyone nominated as one of your agents is still living, your assets have not significantly increased or decreased, you haven't gotten divorced, remarried or widowed, and your general wishes are still the same. Chances are, it's been a while since you've done this kind of housekeeping, and it's time. If circumstances have changed, contact us for an official review and update. Online Washington estate planning is an option as well. Inaccurate planning is often worse than no planning.
