Estate Planning in Salt Lake City, Utah
Estate planning is the process by which you set up legal arrangements that meet your pre-determined specifications if something happens to you. An estate plan contains a number of components. These components often include a detailed will, a “ power of attorney”, a living will, healthcare proxy and sometimes the establishment of a trust.
Estate planning is a simple, yet often overlooked way to avoid probate, save estate taxes and clarify how you want your assests distributed after you die.
