Lawyer Central Offers Essential Estate Planning Resource

(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 20, 2008 ) Lawyer Central is pleased to announce the release of its Estate Planning Legal Resource Center, an essential source of information for anyone who needs to create a trust or a will. These are complicated, but extremely important processes that require thorough research and the guidance of an estate planning lawyer.

According to estate planning attorney Thomas Clarke, “Everybody who is alive today needs a will, but there are certain people who need it more than others.” Clarke uses the example of a young adult around the age of 25 who is married with one or two children. “They’re not thinking that their lives might come to an end quickly, but that’s the very person for whom it’s absolutely vital and critical that they have a will. If nothing else, to make sure that if something terrible happens…the children are provided for.”

A will is a legal document in which people specify the rights of others over their estate after their death. In order for a will to be valid, it must satisfy a number of requirements that vary by state. A trust is an arrangement that enables a person, persons, or organization (known as the trustees) to own and manage money, property, or other assets, for the benefit of another person or group. Asset protection and tax planning are two common reasons to create a trust. Creating effective, beneficial trusts and wills requires the skill and knowledge of qualified estate planning attorneys.

The Estate Planning Legal Resource Center includes tips for choosing a trustee, information about how to create a trust, an explanation of the difference between a living trust and a testamentary trust, and the purposes of a trust. Frequently asked questions about wills and an overview of the process of making and changing a will are also featured.

In the estate planning video library, you can watch over 35 legal videos that feature estate planning attorneys explaining key concepts that relate to estate planning law. Special needs trusts, demonstration of sound mind, living will, the probate process, holographic will, power of attorney, estate planning tax, and estate planning transfer are among the subjects addressed in the estate planning legal videos.
