For many people in Colorado, taking that first step toward estate planning can be difficult. They see all of the various options that are available, and maybe they’ve done some research on their own, but they just don’t know where to start. For most of our readers, you can start here: What are your goals in estate planning?
If you think about your estate plan in terms of accomplishing goals, it can help you determine which options are best for you and your family. For example, is your primary goal to ensure a smooth transfer of assets to your heirs and beneficiaries after you die? Or, do you primarily want to avoid tax implications to the greatest extent? Or even more, do you simply want to make sure that your close family members don’t have too much to worry about from a financial perspective as they grieve your loss?
If you can think of your goals, finding the right pieces to put together a comprehensive estate plan becomes much easier. From wills to trusts, power of attorney documents to healthcare directives, you may need a bit of everything.
