Parts of an Estate Plan
Each estate plan combines a set of specific documents related to your family’s needs to control assets, make critical financial and health care decisions, and designate beneficiaries. Some commonly used estate planning documents in New Hampshire include:
- Wills – name an executor to manage your estate, pay debts, and distribute property as directed through probate administration in court
- Trusts – protect and distribute assets owned by your trust without the need for a court proceeding
- Healthcare or Medical Power of Attorney – select an individual to make health care decisions if you are unable
- Financial Power of Attorney – appoint a person to make decisions related to financial matters on your behalf
- Living Wills with Advanced Healthcare Directives – specify medical treatments you would or would not have if incapacitated or in need of end-of-life care to remove stress from family members dealing with medical professionals
Each document is used to keep your family out of court and avoid conflict if you become incapacitated and when you die. They help your survivors locate assets, plan care for minor children, address costs for long-term care, ensure eligibility for Medicaid or Veterans benefits, efficiently administer your estate to beneficiaries, and more.
After completing your plan, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing everything is set up the right way for yourself and your loved ones. But it doesn’t end there. At Uniquely You, our estate planning lawyers believe an ongoing relationship is critical to choosing and updating the right documents, such as wills and trusts, as life evolves. Over time, families buy and sell property, your children have grandchildren, and tax laws change. We make sure your estate plan remains relevant to avoid surprises and disappointments later.
