Succession Planning And Legacy Giving

Like many parents, you might be concerned about how to transfer financial resources to your children and charities safely through low-tax and tax-free wealth transfer options.  Morris Law Group is adept at devising multi-generational asset transfers that maintain the integrity of your wealth and your values.  For example, the Dynasty Trust allows you to provide successive generations with tax-free access to your financial resources and protect assets from creditors.  Private Foundations in the form of nonprofits or trusts also let you further your philanthropic efforts with individuals or charitable entities.

Asset Protection for Spouses

With the right steps spouses can safeguard their wealth.  Many spouses open joint bank accounts but a Totten Trust is a type of Revocable Trust, meaning the creator can change it later.  It is a safer means of passing wealth to a spouse because it specifically identifies them as the beneficiary.  The Spousal Credit Shelter Trust and AB Trust are options with even greater tax and transfer benefits.

Tax-Friendly Donations

Charitable Lead Trusts and Charitable Remainder Trusts allow you to support charities and, either immediately or in the future, direct financial support to family from the same funds.  If you would like greater say in how the funds are distributed, a Donor-Advised Fund gives you immediate tax benefits and the power to identify grant opportunities.

Avoid Probate

Business Planning LawyerFortunately, avoiding probate is relatively easy with the right steps.  Most estate planning instruments inherently protect against extended probate by clearly stating the person’s intentions.  It is important to be certain your estate plan is sufficient to fulfill your vision.  Let a Morris Law Group estate planning attorney in Rancho Cordova guarantee your wishes are followed.

Protect Privacy and Autonomy

The greatest risk to your privacy exists when you lack a will.  Should you become mentally incapacitated, your family would lack the legal grounds to determine your course of care—that responsibility would fall to the court system, as would allocation of your assets.  The court’s determinations become public record, leaving your private affairs open to public scrutiny.

Protect yourself and your loved ones.  If you fail to establish plans for your estate, your loved ones could be left without financial support.  Absent a will or other vehicle, your estate will be subject to California’s probate process.  Your spouse, children and other potential beneficiaries will lack legal recourse.  If only children remain, they could become wards of the state.
