Deciding what will happen to your home, your financial assets, and your personal possessions after your passing can be a difficult process.

Handling Your Property with Care
You have worked your whole life to build a life for yourself and your family. You do not deserve to have the government come in and interfere with your property after your death. Instead of leaving such important decisions to the courts, get the assistance you need to make wise decisions concerning your estate by turning to my law firm Cassandra R. Beverley, P.A. in Bel Air, Maryland. I am dedicated to helping you through every step of your estate planning needs and am prepared to assist you with many estate planning services.
Creating a Will and Trust
A will and a living trust are both legally-binding documents that allow you to communicate how you would like your property and assets to be handled after your death. Both documents have different guidelines that need to be followed when being created. It is my job as your estate planning attorney to help you figure out which process is the right one for you.
A will is ideal for an individual that has minor children or an adult that needs a guardian after your death. You can name a person or persons that you would like to take care of your loved ones once you have passed. You are also able to dictate how taxes and debts should be paid in the future. A will, however, does not avoid the probate process and will be made public. If you have a lower net worth and have children, you may want to consider creating a will. Contact me in Bel Air to schedule a free consultation.

Living Trust and Business, Retirement, and Other Trusts
A living trust is a more ideal process for families with a higher net worth. In this process, your family is able to avoid probate and allow the administration of your assets to be done privately. However, you are not able to name a guardian or conservatorship for your loved ones. A living trust can take longer and cost more than a will. Along with a living trust for your personal belongings, I can help you create a plan for your business and retirement. To discuss your options, reach out to me at Cassandra R. Beverley, P.A. I serve the areas of Bel Air, Baltimore County, and Harford County, Maryland.
Powers Of Attorney and Health Care Directives
If you or a loved one has fallen ill or been seriously injured, it may be best to name someone to act as a power of attorney or to create a health care directive. Both of these decisions allow you to name someone that you trust as the person to make your most important decisions involving your healthcare, finances, property, and more. As your estate planning attorney, I can help you communicate your wishes so that you can be in good hands. Get in touch with me today to schedule a free consultation.
