Estate Planning Archives

Intellectual property needs to be included in estate planning

It starts as a great idea. Then, with a little bit of effort, the idea turns into something with financial worth. Suddenly, the Colorado resident has an idea, design, artistic creation or other such item that produces income and/or royalties. Amid all of the excitement, the individual does need to think of the future and include this in the estate planning process.

Estate planning and how to save in the end

Spending money to save money may sound odd; however, in many cases, it is necessary for the Colorado resident to spend money in order to maximize his or her savings.  This is especially true when it comes to estate planning. On the surface, it may seem like a simple process, yet once one looks at the overall picture, there are too many things that must be taken into account for the average individual to tackle this process without guidance.

Estate planning is smart and practical for everyone

It is impossible to predict the future, but with help, it may be possible to put plans into place that can allow a person to have security and stability months or years down the road. One way to do this is through effective and thorough estate planning, which is important for everyone. Some may believe this is a step only for the wealthy, but it is practical and prudent for everyone in Colorado, regardless of income level, assets and personal wealth.

Estate planning and the family business

Successful family businesses do not just happen. The Colorado business person spends time planning, analyzing and working to make the business successful. In addition to wanting the business to be successful now, he or she often looks to the future and the legacy that will remain once he or she is gone. The best way to do this is through careful estate planning that includes plans for the family business.

Estate planning is an important part of protecting one's future

Growing older is a fact of life. As one ages, one's perspective regarding what is important often changes. While younger Colorado residents are often more concerned with the day-to-day aspects of life, many older residents have discovered that planning for the future and what will happen once they are no longer able to make these decisions is critical. These concerns for the future are best addressed through various estate planning tools.

Think estate planning is uncomfortable? Your family may disagree

For most people, the thought of aging is not a pleasant one. There are many worries that run through people's heads, chief among them being preferences for medical care and final wishes for when they have passed on. Although uncomfortable, discussing these matters and estate planning accordingly is essential.

More people are adding pet trusts to their estate plans

Caring for a pet is a big responsibility. Many households in Colorado devote a great deal of time and money to providing for the well-being of their animals. Whether they raise them from birth or adopt them full-grown from shelters, pet owners often incorporate their animals into their homes as members of their families. This is why more pet owners are adding pet trusts to their estate plans.

Estate planning is crucial for Colorado business owners

In addition to family responsibilities, Colorado business owners also have a responsibility to their customers and employees. Customers depend upon the business owner to provide a necessary product or service; employees depend upon the business owner to provide their livelihood. For this reason, proper estate planning can be crucial in protecting both customers and employees in addition to loved ones.

Digital assets need to be included in estate planning process

In years past, one would pour over the family photo album to learn about friends and family. If one wanted to say hello to grandma, he or she would have to pick up the telephone and place a call. Then, when the phone bill came in, along with all the other bills, someone would have to sit down and write out a check to pay the bills. Things have changed drastically over the past 20 years or so, and the way that the average Colorado resident communicates, preserves history and even takes care of financial matters has changed. While many of these changes offer a number of advantages, they also can present problems unless they have been addressed as a part of one's estate planning process.

Advance medical directives makes individuals' desires known

Life is full of choices. The Colorado resident chooses where to live, which occupation to become proficient at and even who to spend his or her life with. For some individuals, the desire to continue making such choices is a motivating factor. These individuals also wish to make choices regarding their health care and the extent to which medical treatment will be given. With this in mind, these individuals may benefit from creating  advance medical directives.
