Estate planning in Monticello is the attempt of eliminating confusions over the administration of a probate, optimizing the value of estate and arranging for its safe disposal. It is basically the process of transferring or distributing the assets, including the real & personal properties of the owner to the legal heirs in case of disability or death.
Beneficiary designations, trusts, property ownership, powers of appointment, gift, powers of attorney, living will, partition & specific final arrangements such as whether to be buried or cremated, etc., constitute the major devices of estate planning during lifetime. For post-death estate planning- will, succession & life insurance are the effective tools.
The main objectives of estate planning in Monticello are- tax-effective transfer of asset to beneficiaries, pre-decided time of distribution, selection of guardian, trustee or the executor and business succession.
